Ritual Time and Space: A Liminal Age and Religious Consciousness

Hornborg, Anne-Christine LU and Eaton, Heather (2009) In Religion, Ecology & Gender: East-West Perspectives p.79-89
Abstract
The article discusses if it is possible to bring Victor Turner’s work on liminality and ritual together with Roy Rappaport’s thought-provoking ritual theory and approach the contemporary ecological crisis in new ways. Specifically, it examine if we creatively can employ Turner’s concept of liminality and his understanding of a liminal passage as a metaphorical vision of re-embedding humanity within Earth processes. Could this reshape religious consciousness in an ecological age?
