Eric Rebillard, Jorg Rupke
CUA Press, 2015 - Religion - 331 pages

In this ground-breaking volume, Eric Rebillard and Jörg Rüpke bring renowned scholars together to challenge this norm by seeking to rediscover the individual and to explore the dynamics between individuals and the groups to which they belong.
