More Description

Since time out of mind, ritual has been the public expression of private beliefs. It makes use of pageantry and familiarity to confirm the individual's commitment to the group. Grief rituals serve as a prototype for an intensive examination of the uses and dangers of traditional ritual practice. The author not only examines the purpose of various rituals, but describes how they are performed.
