Abstract:

Madsen's rituals incorporate literary and religious texts in a tight dramatic structure, delineating a religion of nature in which nature is vulnerable to history. Unlike many books of ritual for skeptics, the focus is not on rational statements of belief but on artistic coherence? language and action that will continue to yield meaning over time. Hardheaded, tender, morally urgent and finely literate, In Medias Res achieves an unusual synthesis of the aesthetic and the ethical, presenting both a performable body of ritual and a valuable method for liturgical writing, and setting a new standard for modern liturgy.
