Ritual theory analyzes liminality, the relationship of community and social structure. Inculturation/contextualization explores the relationship of doctrine and practice.

Other Work and Plans for the Future Our seminar will shortly launch a website. We discussed the structure and content of this website. At the moment, there are ten sections with links within each section to the other nine. Each section summarizes an area we have explored over the last ten years. The sections are: (1) Definitions and Foundations; (2) Ritual and Liturgy as art and the place of art in human understanding; (3) The Primal Patterns of Movement; (4) Rituals from the Top and Rituals from the Bottom, the relationship of rituals per se and liturgy as a type of ritual; (5) Improvisation; (6) Neuroscience; (7) Contemporary Memorials; (8) Principles of Generating Ritualization (Reinventing Rites); (9) Narrative and Ritual; (10) Case Studies. There will also be a blog allowing for questions and ongoing discussion. We are looking forward to becoming a virtual seminar!
