Summary
The academic study of religion has recently turned to the investigation of emotion as a crucial aspect of religious life. Seeking to better understand how one affects the other, researchers have begun exploring in nuanced ways the various intersections between our religious lives and our emotional states. This volume offers a collection of essays that together add up to the most comprehensive overview of the interplay between religion and emotion. The essays are grouped into four parts. Part I consists of essays on Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and other world religions. Part II highlights aspects of religious life with special emotional significance -- ritual, music, gender, sexuality, and material culture -- and how each shapes individual and communal emotional performance. Part III delves into the myriad roles of specific emotional states and how they function in assorted religious settings, and Part IV colors the overall discussion with historical perspectives from key figures such as St. Augustine, Soren Kierkegaard, Jonathan Edwards, Emile Durkheim, and William James. This handbook offers a range of critical perspectives, in the form of syntheses, provocations, and prospective observations that will both inform the work of those already engaged in the field and serve as an ideal entry point for anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with the new academic study of religion and emotion. - Publisher
