Book Cover
A Companion to the Anthropology of Religion

A Companion to the Anthropology of Religion presents a collection of original, ethnographically informed essays that explore the diversity of religious thought, practice, and experience in the contemporary world and how to frame these phenomena as objects of inquiry. Leading scholars in the field engage deeply with the concept of religion and its myriad social entailments, and reveal the most up-to-date research and critical thinking in the field.

Among the broad range of topics addressed are the latest thoughts on the perspectivism debate; reflections on religion and the new media; issues of religion relating to person, self, and gender; how ordinary life transcends religious differences; religious language and translation; and many others. Original, thought-provoking, and provocative, A Companion to the Anthropology of Religion adds immeasurable insights into our understanding of the complex relationships between religion, culture, society, and the individual in today's world.
