A Sociological Prelude in Theological Notations: Minor and Major

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle (Academic Journal)peer-review


This paper explores trivial or minor issues of body parts and relics and the major matter of evil. These incongruities offer a means of reflecting on the relationship between sociology and theology as re-set with the advent of postsecularity and debates arising from Pope Benedict XVI's phrase' the dictatorship of relativism'. Weber's approach to the sociology of music provides the metaphor for the article.
