Die körperlich-sinnliche Erfahrung von Musik ist ein wesentliches Medium für die Identifizierung mit religiösen Traditionen, das heißt für die Anbindung Einzelner an kollektive religiöse Identitäten. Diese zentrale These wird in der ethnografischen Studie für das Forschungsfeld Glastonbury entwickelt.Grundlage der Feldforschung ist die Erfassung der religiösen Strömungen vor Ort. Das Spektrum reicht von Anglikanern über Neo-Hindus bis hin zu Druiden und den Goddess People. In der Darstellung dieses religiösen Feldes wird die Vielfalt, Flexibilität und situative Gebundenheit religiöser Identitätsbildung auf innovative Weise eingefangen. Des Weiteren wird im Rahmen einer Sensografie beschrieben, wie Körper und Sinne im Rahmen der gemeinschaftlichen religiösen Praxis der verschiedenen Gruppierungen angesprochen werden.Im Zentrum der Untersuchung steht die ausführliche religionsmusikologische Analyse der im religiösen Feld verwendeten Musik.Ein theoretisches Erklärungsmodell wird entworfen, das die Rolle von Musik in den lokalen kollektiven Identitätsbildungsprozessen bestimmen will. Dabei werden Aspekte wie die Wirksamkeit von Musik, Gemeinschaftserlebnisse beim Musizieren, die Konstruktion kollektiver religionshistorischer Autobiografien und ästhetisch-musikalische Identitätskonstitutionen diskutiert und neueste ethnologische, musikwissenschaftliche und ritualtheoretische Ansätze kreativ miteinander verbunden. Das im Umfeld der Religionsästhetik angesiedelte Forschungsfeld Religion und Musik wird erstmals umfassend aus religionswissenschaftlicher Perspektive erschlossen.

Presenting an overview of an emerging field in the study of contemporary religion, this book, together with a complementary volume Religion in the Neoliberal Age, explores issues of religion, neoliberalism and consumer society. Claiming that we have entered a new phase that implies more than the recasting of state-religion relations, the authors examine how religious changes are historically anchored in modernity but affected by the commoditization, mediatization, neoliberalization and globalization of society and social life. Religion in Consumer Society explores religion as both shaped by consumer culture and as shaping consumer culture. Following an introduction which critically analyses studies on consumer culture and integrates scholarship in the sociology of religion, this book explores the following topics: how consumerism and electronic media have shaped globalized culture, and how this is affecting religion; the dynamics and characteristics of often overlooked middle-class religion, and how these relate to globalization and differences between 'developed' and 'emerging' countries; emerging trends, and how we understand phenomena as different as mega churches and holistic spiritualistic journeys, and how the pressures of consumer culture act on religious traditions, indigenous and exogenous; the politics of religious phenomena in the Age of Neoliberalism; and the hybrid areas emerging from these reconfigurations of religion and the market. Outlining changes in both the political-institutional and cultural spheres, the contributors offer an international overview of developments in different countries and state of the art representation of religion in the new global political economy.

Materiality In Religion And Culture

This book examines the significance of the material dimensions of religion and culture. By looking at how scholars have researched religious materiality in the past, and focusing especially upon the variety of ways objects are handled in contemporary religious life, the reader will discover some insight into the interplay between the material and the immaterial. Case studies analyze the use of things in rituals and sacred places as well as ways in which they are appropriated for religious and academic instruction. The book attempts to reinterpret what the materiality in religion and culture might signify in light of multidisciplinary methodological approaches and helps to gain some ground on the abstract perspective of religions.

A rapid development of religious popular cultures and lifestyles can be observed across the globe. This book provides unique case studies from Asia and Europe illustrating new religious practices, forms of articulation and mass mediatization, all of which render religious traditions significant for contemporary issues and concerns. The essays examine experiences of spirituality in combination with commercialization and expressive performative practices as well as everyday politics of identity. Based on innovative theoretical reflections, the essays take into consideration what the transcultural negotiation of religion, tradition and the popular signifies in different places and social contexts. With contributions by Anthony Reid, Hubert Knoblauch, Ariel Heryanto, Stefanie von Schnurbein and others.

Zwischen Musik und Religion gibt es vielerlei Beziehungen: Bekannte religiöse Texte sind unzählige Male vertont worden, religiöse Institutionen haben Kompositionen in Auftrag gegeben, in religiöser Architektur finden Konzerte statt usw. Auch der Psychologie gibt das Thema “religiöse Musik” viele Fragen vor: Warum berührt religiöse Musik Menschen oft eigentümlich, sogar solche, die sich als nicht-religiös empfinden? Sind Religiosität und Musikalität evolutionär-psychologisch analog zu verstehen? Haben Religion und Musik gleiche pränatale Wurzeln? Dienen sie denselben psychologischen Funktionen? Wie ist die manchmal therapeutische Rolle von Musik in religiösen Kontexten zu verstehen? Dies sind nur einige der Fragen, denen sich die AutorInnen in diesem Band widmen. Sie gewähren einen aufschlussreichen Einblick in die Möglichkeiten psychologischer Analyse der Beziehungen zwischen Religion und Musik.

Blood And Mistletoe

Crushed by the Romans in the first century A.D., the ancient Druids of Britain left almost no reliable evidence behind. Because of this, historian Ronald Hutton shows, succeeding British generations have been free to reimagine, reinterpret, and reinvent the Druids. Hutton’s captivating book is the first to encompass two thousand years of Druid history and to explore the evolution of English, Scottish, and Welsh attitudes toward the forever ambiguous figures of the ancient Celtic world. Druids have been remembered at different times as patriots, scientists, philosophers, or priests; sometimes portrayed as corrupt, bloodthirsty, or ignorant, they were also seen as fomenters of rebellion. Hutton charts how the Druids have been written in and out of history, archaeology, and the public consciousness for some 500 years, with particular focus on the romantic period, when Druids completely dominated notions of British prehistory. Sparkling with legends and images, filled with new perspectives on ancient and modern times, this book is a fascinating cultural study of Druids as catalysts in British history.

The Death of Sacred Texts draws attention to a much neglected topic in the study of sacred texts: the religious and ritual attitudes towards texts which have become old and damaged and can no longer be used for reading practices or in religious worship. This book approaches religious texts and scriptures by focusing on their physical properties and the dynamic interactions of devices and habits that lie beneath and within a given text. In the last decades a growing body of research studies has directed attention to the multiple uses and ways people encounter written texts and how they make them alive, even as social actors, in different times and cultures. Considering religious people seem to have all the motives for giving their sacred texts a respectful symbolic treatment, scholars have paid surprisingly little attention to the ritual procedures of disposing and renovating old texts. This book fills this gap, providing empirical data and theoretical analyses of historical and contemporary religious attitudes towards, and practices of text disposals within, seven world religions: Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism. Exploring the cultural and historical variations of rituals for religious scriptures and texts (such as burials, cremations and immersion into rivers) and the underlying beliefs within the religious traditions, this book investigates how these religious practices and stances respond to modernization and globalization processes when new technologies have made it possible to mass-produce and publish religious texts on the Internet.

Every year, Johann Sebastian Bach's major vocal works are performed to mark liturgical milestones in the Christian calendar. Written by a renowned Bach scholar, this concise and accessible book provides an introduction to the music and cultural contexts of the composer's most beloved masterpieces, including the Magnificat, Christmas Oratorio, and St. John Passion. In addition to providing historical information, each chapter highlights significant aspects--such as the theology of love--of a particular piece. This penetrating volume is the first to treat the vocal works as a whole, showing how the compositions were embedded in their original performative context within the liturgy as well as discussing Bach's musical style, from the detailed level of individual movements to the overarching aspects of each work. Published in the approach to Easter when many of these vocal works are performed, this outstanding volume will appeal to casual concertgoers and scholars alike.
