The divine at hand


Folk religiosity is not only an interpretation of the official doctrines. It covers changing ideas about medicine, hygiene, magical prophylactics, cosmology and divination. Its scope is broad, embracing the biological life cycle (with its religious and secular rituals) as well as events in the civil or mythological calendar and even perception of the hereafter.
