    One thought on “Ritual in Early Modern Europe”

    1. Edward Muir’s Ritual in Early Modern Europe describes the Reformation as a process of distanciation from the material world, relocating the locus of the sacred from the materially accessible to the inwardly apprehensible.

    2. Re-read January 7, 2010: very textbook-y. I think it was at this point that I began to understand just how very right my peers were when they told me that at some point in my reading, I would begin to be able to tell what the book was going to say before I'd even read it.

    3. This is one of the most interesting books I've ever read. The history presented is good, but what really takes the cake are Muir's ideas on ritual, and how well his assertions fit into both history and modern life. In fact, I often applied this book to literary studies and criticism it earned me several high grades and a few awards.

    4. I had to read this for school so I'm not gonna give it a rating. Although, most of it was pretty boring, some of it was pretty interesting too.
