Ritual and Christian Beginnings
Full Product Description
The socio-cognitive approach to ritual is applied to a number of test cases, including John the Baptist, the ritual healing practiced by Jesus and the early Christians, the social life of Pauline Christianity, and the development of early Christian baptismal practices. The analysis creates building blocks for a new account of Christian beginnings, highlighting the role of ritual innovation, cooperative signalling, and the importance of bodily actions for the generation and transmission of religious knowledge.
Ritual and Christian Beginnings by Risto Uro was published by Oxford University Press in March 2016. The ISBN for Ritual and Christian Beginnings is 9780199661176.
