Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Devotional "occasions" or experiences by Irish Catholics form the crux of this powerful, first book-length anthropological study of Irish Catholicism.Rich in ethnographical material, wide-ranging archival sources, insightful cultural observations, vivid accounts of individual experiences, and thoughtful scrutiny of religious questions and theories illuminate twenty years of ethnographic fieldwork. From these varied resources Lawrence Taylor creates a memorable account of the forces that shape local forms of Catholicism in southwest Donegal.

Book News Annotation:

An exploration of Irish Catholicism through an ethnography of the historical and contemporary shape of that religion in County Donegal. Draws on two major theoretical traditions in the anthropological study of religion: the tradition of Geertz, Douglas, and Turner and that of Marx, Foucault, and Asad, accompanied by vivid accounts of individual experiences.
