Ritualized Faith

Essays on the Philosophy of Liturgy

Terence Cuneo

Oxford Studies in Analytic Theology

  • Offers philosophical explorations of liturgy and focuses on the Christian East to offer rich descriptions and draw out their implications.
  • Considers the multi-sensory character of the Eastern liturgies and works through questions that Christian liturgy puts to its participants.
  • Connects philosophy of religion with religious practice and contemplates the ethical dimensions of corporate ritualized activity.
  • Illustrates how one might approach the problem of divine hiddenness.
  • Reveals the ways in which liturgical scripts call for its participants to construct and shape their narrative identities through liturgical re-enactment.
