Rock Top Temple

"To practice the history of religions... is to insist on discussing the temporal, contextual, situated, interested, human, and material dimensions of those discourses, practices, and institutions that characteristically represent themselves as eternal, transcendent, spiritual, and divine."

- Bruce Lincoln, "Theses on Method" (1996)
