Over the past decade the academic study of emotion has developed very substantially across a number of disciplines, including religious studies. This anthology is the first collection of recent papers addressing the topic of religion and emotion. The selected pieces-each a foundational essayin this rapidly evolving field-examine attitudes toward and expressions of emotion in a wide range of religious traditions and periods. Among the themes considered are the relation of emotion to moral or religious norms, the role of emotion in faith, religious emotion as a performance of feeling inritual contexts, and the relation of emotion to religious language. Specific topics examined range from filial emotions and filial values in medieval Korean Buddhism to weeping and spirituality in 16th-century Jewish mysticism. This volume is designed to provide an introduction to recent work in thefield and should appeal to both scholars and students of comparative religion, anthropology, and psychology.
John Corrigan is Edwin Scott Gaustad Professor of Religion and Professor of History at Florida State University. Among his many books are Business of the Heart: Religion and Emotion in the Nineteenth Century (2001) and The Prism of Piety: Catholick Congregational Clergy at the Beginning of the Enlightenment (OUP, 1991).
