The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Emotion

First Edition

Edited by John Corrigan

Oxford Handbooks

This volume collects essays under four categories: religious traditions, religious life, emotional states, and historical and theoretical perspectives. These essays describe the ways in which emotions have played a role in various world religions, and analyze the manner in which key components of religious life -- ritual, music, gender, sexuality and material culture -- represent and shape emotional performance. Taken together, the writings included in this handbook serve as an ideal entry point for anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with the new academic study of religion and emotion.
