Abstract:

In religious studies, theory, and method research has long been embroiled in a polarized debate over scientific versus theological perspectives. Ronald L. Grimes shows that this debate has stagnated, due in part to a manner of theorizing too far removed from the study of actual religious practices. A worthwhile theory, according to Grimes, must be practice-oriented, and practices are most effectively studied by field research methods. This title melds together a systematic theory and method capable of underwriting the cross-cultural interdisciplinary study of ritual enactments.
