Sociological History of Christian Worship by Martin D. Stringer

Book Description

In this book the 2000 year history of Christian worship is viewed from a sociological perspective. Martin Stringer develops the idea of discourse as a way of understanding the place of Christian worship within its many and diverse social contexts. Beginning with the Biblical material the author provides a broad survey of changes over 2000 years of the Christian church, together with a series of case studies that highlight particular elements of the worship, or specific theoretical applications. Stringer does not simply examine the mainstream traditions of Christian worship in Europe and Byzantium, but also gives space to lesser-known traditions in Armenia, India, Ethiopia and elsewhere. Offering a contribution to the ongoing debate that breaks away from a purely textual or theological study of Christian worship, this book provides a greater understanding of the place of worship in its social and cultural context.

Contemporary Western Ethnography and the Definition of Religion by Martin D. Stringer Contemporary Western Ethnography and the Definition of Religion, Paperback (April 2011)

Based on the exploration whether the widespread activity of sitting next to a grave and talking to a deceased person is a religious act, this book argues that it is probably much more typical of a fundamental religious act than much of what happens in churches, synagogues or mosques.
