Can the immaterial be embodied in the body, language and material objects?What is the role of ritual, time, and place in religion?Why is charisma important for religious movements? How do global processes interact with religions?With international case studies from a range of religious traditions, suggestions for further reading, and inventive reflection boxes, Anthropology of Religion: The Basics is an essential read for students approaching the subject for the first time"--
