  • The life incarnate and the life divine: Spiritual evolution, androgyny and
           the grace of the goddess in the teachings of Mirra Alfassa, the Mother of
           Integral Yoga

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nika Kuchuk
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Mirra Alfassa (1878–1973), better known as The Mother, was Sri Aurobindo’s spiritual partner and co-founder of Integral Yoga, a global movement based in South India and currently numbering multiple centres around the world. Affectionately addressed by her devotees at the Ashram as Douce Mère (Sweet Mother), Alfassa is understood to be an incarnation of the Universal Mother, or Shakti, who has ‘taken birth’ on earth in order to facilitate the spiritual – and physical – evolution of humanity to its next stage of development. At the same time, Alfassa deemed celibacy as necessary for advanced spiritual practice, and had renounced biological or ‘physical’ motherhood (and sexual intimacy) even before her collaboration with Aurobindo. Alfassa’s complex attitudes towards gender and normative gender roles, this article argues, inform her teachings and self-positioning as The Mother. Specifically, the intersection of sex, gender and physical materiality is an important current in Alfassa’s thought, including her instructions to future residents of Auroville (a utopian intentional community), her reflections on the Matrimandir, as well as her teachings on the future supramental humanity, whose ‘luminous’ divinized bodies would be genderless or androgynous. Here, the author examines the tensions between the gendered creative and spiritual powers attributed to The Mother, such as her role as Aurobindo’s Shakti and as a grace-bestowing living goddess, and Alfassa’s often ambivalent discourse around gender, embodiment and motherhood. These tensions, it is argued, are not only key to her articulation of Integral Yoga, but also raise broader, conceptual questions about persistent cultural and religious associations between gender and materiality.

  • A Canadian Story of Jewish Divorce: Listening to Rabbis Across
           Denominations Wrestle with Egalitarianism and K’lal Yisrael

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Deidre Butler, Betina Appel Kuzmarov
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      This ethnographic interview-based research (2016–2021) analyzes the narratives of a cohort of rabbis in Ottawa who share their experiences of Jewish divorce. Jewish religious divorce is gendered and asymmetrical where the husband gives the divorce to the passively receiving wife who may not herself initiate divorce. This project interrupts the ways in which Jewish divorce is primarily identified in terms of get abuse in the Orthodox world. The asymmetrical divorce process contributes to get abuse, which includes delaying, refusing, or extorting favourable terms in exchange for the husband providing the wife with her get (religious divorce). Women who cannot secure divorces are known as agunot (singular agunah, chained women), who cannot remarry and who commit adultery if they have sexual relations with another man. Women face the additional burden that if they bear children to anyone other than their husband, such children would have the status of mamzerim (singular mamzer, legally illegitimate, product of an illicit union) who may not marry other Jews except other mamzerim, who may not hold certain positions of communal leadership, and whose status is inherited from generation to generation. This gendered injustice becomes the focus of scholarship even as it arouses both communal activism and internal debates. While get abuse is most common in the Orthodox Jewish community, our interviews with Canadian rabbis reveals that Jewish divorce is a transdenominational phenomenon that plays out within and across denominational boundaries. Against a backdrop of increasing stringency in the Orthodox world transnationally, and intensifying concern for the consequences of inegalitarian Jewish divorce, rabbinic stories point to shifting denominational practice. This transdenominational context is key to understanding Jewish divorce in North America. Attending to Jewish divorce in Canada through a denominational lens does important work in disentangling systemic and local factors. We argue that rabbinic stories about how rabbis engage with divorce reveals how the twin challenges of egalitarianism and rabbinic concerns for the unity and continuity of the Jewish people (K’lal Yisrael) shape the experience of Jewish divorce and divorce practice itself. Jewish divorce impacts women in particularly gendered ways but is largely interpreted and practiced by male rabbis. Through our original theoretical framework of “troubling orthopraxy”, we analyse how orthopraxy (correct divorce practice) is conflated with stringency, and how that dynamic pushes and pulls at divorce practice.

  • Les femmes et les mythes hindous dans le théâtre hindi

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Diana Dimitrova
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      This article examines the portrayal of women in Hindi drama. In the following, we will examine the cultural segments that have influenced the development of the dramatic genre of Hindi. We will analyze Hindu images of the feminine according to three mythical figures. We propose to understand the interpretation of the feminine through these three mythical figures of great importance in the Hindu tradition. In support of our theoretical discussion, we have chosen to focus on the dramas of three representative playwrights, Bharatendu Harishcandra, Jayshankar Prasad and Jagdishcandra Mathur. We will deal with the ways Hindu images of the feminine have been reinterpreted in Hindi theater of pre-independence India. By means of a thematic analysis and ideological criticism, we aim to understand how Hindu myths have been used in order to affirm or contest Hindu female models of the submissive woman or the independent woman.

  • The modalism debate on Karl Barth’s doctrine of the Trinity

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dong-Yaul Tae
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Karl Barth is best known for renewing interest in the doctrine of the Trinity in the mid to late 20th century and into the present day. However, criticism has been continuously raised that he fell into modalism in his understanding of the Trinity. Barth’s usage of the terms ‘repetition’ and ‘modes of being’ is at the heart of the debate. In other words, the crux of the critics’ argument is that his refusal to call the three hypostases of the Trinity as persons and his insistence on calling them repetitions or modes led him to fall into modalism. In particular, relatively recently Michael Ovey, in the same vein as the previous criticisms, and more specifically and sharply than them, argues that Barth’s use of repetition language makes the Son a repetition of the Father and causes the ultimate elimination of plurality of the three hypostases, resulting in a distinct modalism. This article will respond especially to this criticism of Ovey, demonstrating that the contention that Barth avoided modalism when pursuing appropriate expression about God is a defensible claim. Specifically, this research will show that the repetition that Barth refers to is not the repetition of the Father, but the repetition of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It will also show that Barth consistently holds the distinction of the three hypostases in expounding the doctrine of the Trinity.

  • Evangelistic Belief and Behavior among Canadian Congregants

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joel Thiessen, Kennedy Quantz, Arch Chee Keen Wong, Keith Walker, Bill McAlpine
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      With the recent surge of “religious nones” in many Western nations, there is a growing interest among some church attenders to effectively “reach” this demographic. In this article, we build on theories of strictness and social embeddedness to tackle three questions regarding evangelistic belief and behavior in Canadian Catholic, mainline Protestant, and conservative Protestant congregations. First, in what ways are evangelistic beliefs and behaviors similar or dissimilar across theological traditions, notably when comparing stricter and less strict contexts' Second, how are evangelistic behaviors similar or dissimilar based on a person’s frequency of church attendance' Third, what challenges do people confront in their evangelistic efforts' Drawing on survey data with over 9100 Catholic, mainline, and conservative Protestant respondents in over 250 Canadian congregations, this study compares responses across theological sectors, reported levels of importance that church members attach to evangelism, as well as church attendance frequency. Data reveal that those in religious traditions with stricter “insider–outsider” boundaries and who were more socially embedded in their religious groups (i.e., conservative Protestant traditions) were the most likely to embrace evangelistic attitudes and behaviors, in contrast to those in religious groups with less strict boundaries or social embeddedness in their religious group (i.e., United Church of Canada). However, those with the strongest “us–them” boundaries also found those boundaries particularly prohibitive to their evangelistic efforts reflected, in part, in a widespread leaning toward passive versus assertive forms of evangelism.

  • We are all institutionalized: Three works to challenge the conceit of a
           generically ‘academic’ study of religion

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Johannes Wolfart
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      This essay encounters and considers together three very different recent works by scholars of religion, each one with strong Canadian connections: Maureen Matthews, Aaron Hughes and Donald Wiebe. The primary purpose, however, is to illuminate more broadly the importance of institutional dynamics in the formation and operation of the academic study of religion (i.e., not just in Canada). This stands in contrast to a well-established pattern of debating supposedly loftier questions of naming, disciplinary identity, idealized mandates and limits, etc. Furthermore, this essay suggests that scale of investigation matters – with a local, single-institution study revealing more, perhaps, about how we really do our work than either national or transnational efforts. In the end, reading these three books together suggests a tremendous diversity, including dynamic institutional diversity, in academic approaches to religion: scientific and non-scientific (predictably) but also, disciplined or expert and non-expert or academic administrative. Thus, the essay enjoins readers to take seriously a distinction between domains of ‘distributive’ and ‘concentrated’ expertise within the academy (e.g., Religious Studies versus, say, Civil Engineering), as well as the development of patterns of ‘altero-piety’ across the expert/nonexpert divide. In the end, such murky institutional dynamics appear to be shaping and impelling our field from the local institutional level (e.g., at the University of Winnipeg as documented by Matthews) to the transnational institutional level (e.g., in the International Association for the History of Religions as documented by Wiebe). Ultimately, one must conclude that stipulating that Religious Studies entail the academic study of religion is meaningless. ‘The academy’ is no more universal and unique (sui generis') than ‘religion’ itself. Rather, academic institutions are diverse and particular; and yet a variety of factors, ranging from deep colonial histories to the current global political economy of postsecondary higher education, all work to conceal the importance of the institutional basis of Religious Studies. Put another way (and pace Jonathan Z Smith): religion certainly is a creation of the scholar’s study – yet, far from imagining this scholar’s study as a place set apart (as it were), we must start imagining it as a historical, social and institutional location. That would take us one small but further step towards the all-important goal of disciplinary ‘reflexivity”.

  • The sovereignty of revelation: On Paul Ricœur’s hermeneutics of
           revelation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Balázs M Mezei
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      In this article I overview Paul Ricœur’s understanding of divine revelation on the basis of some of his relevant writings. I argue that Ricœur’s hermeneutics of revelation has two aspects: on the one hand Ricœur’s explains the complex ways of acquiring and interpreting divine revelation especially with respect to the Bible; on the other hand, he acknowledges that revelation, originating in God’s freedom, is immediately given. In Ricœur’s view, the understanding of this immediacy is tainted by the presence of evil in human understanding which hinders the realization of revelation itself. As a critique of this standpoint I argue that the immediate givenness of revelation is logically and phenomenologically presupposed in our interpretations. Any hermeneutics of revelation entails a phenomenology of revelation. This phenomenology contains both the self-founding of human beings and, at the same time, the recognition of the absoluteness of the divine. Husserl’s phenomenology offers a way to the understanding of the immediacy of revelation through his central term of Eigenheitlichkeit. Ricœur understands this term not as genuine reality but rather as appartenance, ‘belonging to’, and reshapes its meaning in line with a hermeneutical naturalism. This explains his difficulty to conceive properly the sovereignty of revelation and the importance of phenomenology in the understanding of its immediate character.

  • Forging New Futures for the Study of Religion in Canada: A Review of
           Hughes’s From Seminary to University

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jennifer A Selby
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Aaron W. Hughes’s monograph, From Seminary to University: An Institutional History of the Study of Religion in Canada, argues that, unlike other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences, the study of religion in Canada is imbricated with nation-state politics. The creation of Canada’s initial seminaries post-Confederation served to establish Christianity as normative. By the 1960s, these seminaries were largely replaced with departments that aimed to promote national values of multiculturalism and diversity. In her critique, Selby commends the book’s convincing argument and impressive historical archival work, and critiques the book’s limited engagement with the politics of settler colonialism and scholarly contributions in the province of Québec.

  • Ethical veganism as nonreligion in Mr J Casamitjana Costa v the League
           Against Cruel Sports

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lauren Strumos
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      In January 2020, an employment tribunal in the United Kingdom decided that ethical veganism qualified for protection from discrimination as a philosophical belief under the UK’s Equality Act 2010. This article explores the reasoning behind this judgement, as presented in the preliminary hearing decision for Mr J Casamitjana Costa v The League Against Cruel Sports, to argue that ethical veganism in this context can be conceptualized as a form of nonreligion. This article uses a relational theory of nonreligion to demonstrate how ethical veganism in this case is constructed to be distinct from religious belief while also being conceptually entangled with religion. It contributes to emergent scholarship on nonreligion, and veganism and (non)religion, by demonstrating how a relational framework allows connections among these phenomena to be articulated and explored with greater depth. In addition, this article considers the diversity of ethical veganism as an identity and practice in relation to its legal construction as a philosophical belief. Attention is paid to the ways in which veganism as lived can intersect with religion, nonreligion and areligion.

      Authors: Jean-François Roussel
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Cet article porte sur un récent recueil du dramaturge wendat Yves Sioui Durand, exposant sa démarche dramaturgique, spirituelle et théorique. Ces textes exposent une vision spirituelle pour la décolonisation des peuples autochtones mais ils peuvent aussi amener la théologie à se reconsidérer elle-même dans ses repères disciplinaires hérités d’un projet colonial. La proposition de Sioui Durand éclaire non seulement le déclin du projet pastoral autochtone des dernières décennies dans l’Église catholique, mais aussi les options explorées en théologie face au défi interculturel. Nous terminerons en esquissant les avenues d’une possible théologie à la rencontre de la « résurgence » autochtone.

  • The Study of Religion and the Canadian Social Order

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Seljak
      First page: 137
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      In his book From Seminary to University: An Institutional History of the Study of Religion in Canada, Aaron Hughes provides a unique analysis of how the study of religion developed throughout the history of Canada by examining the evolution of its institutional context, that is, from faith-based seminaries and theological colleges to secular departments of religious studies. He situates these institutional changes in the development of the Canadian social order. In this uniquely Canadian context, the study of religion moved, Hughes notes, “from religious exclusion to secularism, from Christocentrism to multiculturalism, and from theology to secular religious studies.” While this is an important and original argument, Hughes offers only a cursory analysis of the unique developments in francophone Quebec universities (as he readily admits) and ignores the study of religion in other disciplines. Moreover, while Hughes traces the motivation for the transformation of the study of religion in the 1960s to the new ethno-religious diversity of Canada, I argue that it should be traced to a growing liberal cosmopolitanism that had infiltrated Canadian society, including its churches, seminaries, and theological colleges. Hughes does not adequately explore the religious roots of why Canadian Christians decided to secularize the study of religion. Finally, while Hughes examines patriarchy and colonialism in his analysis of the study of religion in earlier periods, he drops these topics in his discussion of the secularization of the study of religion, which did not address either of these issues sufficiently.

      Authors: K Merinda Simmons
      First page: 144
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      The story Aaron Hughes tells in From Seminary to University (2020) is at once archival and timely, not because it presumes to transport the past into the present or mine for prescriptive insights from thinkers long gone but because it “provide[s] a historical work that accounts for ‘how’ as opposed to ‘what’” (13). In presenting a narrative arc for the study of religion in Canada, the book offers a model of how nuanced historiography might attend to contemporary questions (both field-specific and more broadly) without making the past “about” or “for” us. Avoiding the trappings of recovery work as well as retrospective projection, Hughes considers the archive on its own terms while remaining cognizant of the fact that it never speaks for itself. This brief response essay greets the occasion the book provides to think about the structural framework that shapes the “how” of an academic discourse.

      As part of the review symposium of From Seminary to University: An Institutional History of the Study of Religion in Canada (University of Toronto Press, 2020) by Aaron W. Hughes, this review essay compares and contrasts the narrative it tells us to other national contexts and explores what might be the Canadian peculiarities not necessarily obvious to those who have been educated in that system.

  • From Theological College to University: A Perspective from Queen’s

      Authors: William S Morrow

      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      This review complements Hughes’s book by reflecting on the development of the Department of Religious Studies at Queen’s University to the present. It validates his claim that the growth of religious studies in Canadian universities was dependent on administrative cultures often idiosyncratic to particular institutions. In the case of Queen’s, a pattern of administrative interaction and shared faculty between the University and Queen’s Theological College persisted much longer than in comparable organizations. This can be explained by three considerations: the ethos of the United Church of Canada, growing awareness of multiculturalism from the 1970s onward, and the influence of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. Although the first two of these factors are identified by Hughes, the last has been overlooked. It explains why, however, the Masters of Theological Studies could act as a de facto graduate degree in Religious Studies at Queen’s until the department developed its M.A. in 2001.

      In this brief review, I organize my comments around the subtitle of Hughes’s book and take up the themes of Institution, Study of Religion, and Canada. In doing so, I highlight the ways that Hughes’s history provides insight into: 1) the roles of institutions qua institutions (albeit with social actors now) in the establishment of religious studies; 2) the distinctly Canadian elements of religious studies as it emerged in the midst of particular political, social, and cultural contexts; and 3) where the book takes us when thinking about the elastic boundaries that make up Canadian identity.

      Authors: Géraldine Mossière

      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      In his book ‘From Seminary to University: An Institutional History of the Study of Religion in Canada’, Aaron Hughes offers a comprehensive portrait of the historical construction of the study of religion in Canada. While Hughes explains in-depth the social, political and historical conditions of production of knowledge on religion as an academic domain in provinces of Protestant heritage, his contribution is less thorough regarding the development of this academic field in the province of Quebec. In this article, I depict how the creation of institutions of knowledge in Quebec hinged around the Catholic hegemony that lasted since the inception of the colony, namely among faculties of theologies that framed main historical universities. I also argue that this heritage has shaped the ongoing construction of the study of religion as an epistemological issue between Catholic theologians and religious studies scholars.

  • L’anthropologie de la reconnaissance de Marcel Hénaff et la question du

      Authors: Patrice Bergeron

      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      La fécondité de l’œuvre de Marcel Hénaff (1942–2018) pour penser les sociétés occidentales modernes et ce qu’elles deviennent reste encore à apprécier. Sous la diversité des thèmes qu’elle aborde se cache une pensée d’une grande cohérence – Le prix de la vérité. Le don, l’argent, la philosophie (2002) en est le meilleur exemple. Cette pensée qui est inspirée de l'anthropologie sociale et culturelle, de la phénoménologie et, par moments, de la théologie chrétienne, doit sa forme au regard généalogique qu’elle mobilise. Mais c’est par rapport au religieux tel qu’il a été pensé dans l’école française de sociologie et d’anthropologie qu’il faut la situer pour en saisir toute la cohérence. Car c’est la question du symbolisme telle qu’elle se présente chez Claude Lévi-Strauss qui a propulsé la pensée d’Hénaff et l’a conduite à « réactiver » l’héritage de Marcel Mauss sur le don réciproque cérémoniel, de manière à développer sa propre anthropologie de la reconnaissance.

      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      The Evangelical vote played a major role when Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. Although various factors may explain this result, we should not overlook the influence of the alliance that emerged between Trump and leading Evangelicals during the campaign. In this article, I present four books written before and after the election that illustrate how Trump prophecies and the portrayal of Trump as a national savior were used deliberately to convince conservative Christians that voting for him was their religious duty. With the help of framing theory, I analyze this rhetorical strategy of Trump’s allies, and show how it not only has influenced Christian voters, but also the president himself

  • Taming the tiger of hwadu absolutism: Kanhwa Sŏn/Chan practices
           understood from the perspective of ritual practice and experience

      Authors: Sung-Eun Thomas Kim

      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Kanhwa Sŏn has often been perceived as iconoclastic and impervious to theorizing. Furthermore, its critique of “hermeneutical rigidity” and “hwadu absolutism” point to the impossibility of a meaningful dialogue between its practitioners and scholars of Buddhism. It has even been argued that such characteristics of kanhwa Sŏn have compromised the possibility of its practice becoming adoptable in contemporary life.But kanhwa Sŏn practiced in the summer and winter Sŏn/Chan retreats has all the trappings of ritual. In an effort to build a methodological bridge, this article attempts to provide the grounds for discussing kanhwa Sŏn practices from the perspective of social science. With this in mind, this article will highlight the experiences of the practitioners in the context of ritual practice while perceiving those experiences as socially determined manifestations.The reason for this attempt is that there seems to be much similarity in the soteriological structure of kanhwa Sŏn practice with the structure of ritual practice that involves constructing and eliciting transformative experiences. Further similarities are in the motif of returning from the ritual/retreat having been transformed into a person with a new identity. By framing the practice of kanhwa Sŏn as ritual practice and experience, one can bring the discussion of kanhwa Sŏn into the wider discourses of the academic study of religion.

  • Le théâtre hindi – l’identité culturelle et
           l’imaginaire hindou

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Diana Dimitrova
      First page: 242
      Abstract: Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses, Ahead of Print.
      Cet article s’intéresse à la notion d’identité culturelle ainsi qu’à l’imaginaire hindou et à son influence sur la création du canon du théâtre hindi moderne. Pour ce faire, nous examinerons les segments culturels qui ont influencé le développement du genre dramatique en langue hindie. Les implications idéologiques de la construction de la tradition du théâtre hindi en tant que forme néo-sanskritique, niant les influences occidentales et islamiques, seront également discutées. Bien que la « redécouverte », après les années 1960, des traditions théâtrales folkloriques/indigènes/ deśī ait été fort importante, nous avançons qu’elle n’a pas été suffisante pour relancer et arrêter la disparition du théâtre hindi moderne puisque ces traditions n’ont pu représenter l’identité culturelle indienne. Nous proposons de comprendre l’identité culturelle indienne comme une catégorie pluraliste, qui est informée par de multiples segments culturels, comme les traditions occidentale et brahmanique, les traditions littéraires islamiques et indigènes. Par conséquent, il s’ensuit que toutes les écoles du théâtre hindi – néosanskritique, naturaliste et nativiste – représentent l’identité culturelle indienne et devraient faire partie du canon littéraire hindi.This article focuses on the notion of cultural identity and the Hindu imaginary and its influence on the creation of the canon of modern Hindi theater. I will examine the cultural segments that have influenced the development of the dramatic genre of Hindi. I will also discuss the ideological implications of building the tradition of Hindi theater as a neo-Sanskritic form, denying Western and Islamic influences. I argue that although the “rediscovery”, after the 1960s, of folkloric / indigenous / deśi theatrical traditions has been very important, it has not been enough to revive and stop the disappearance of modern Hindi theater, since these traditions could not have represented Indian cultural identity. Thus, I propose to understand cultural identity as a pluralistic category, which is informed by multiple cultural segments, such as Western, Brahmanic, Islamic and indigenous iterary traditions. Therefore, it follows that all schools of Hindi theatre -Neo-Sanskritic, naturalistic and nativistic-represent Indian cultural identity and should be part of the literary canon of Hindi.
