Michel Chodkiewicz, a researcher and editor with an atypical career, recently passed away. The Archives pay tribute to this great specialist in Islamic mysticism.
The first note continues the journal’s interest in Hindu studies, which have benefited from several landmark publications over the past two years. The other notes look at the Ahmadiyya in the British Empire, the relationship between the Holy See and the Nazi regime, the encounter of Marxism and Christianity, the role of White Evangelical currents in Donald Trump’s election, the relationship between literature and Christianity, the theology and sociology of ritual, and the ongoing debates over the notion of religion and its content of symbolic and practical violence.
The “cross-readings” section focuses on two ethnographic studies: in Voyager dans l’invisible.Techniques chamaniques de l’imagination (La Découverte, 2019), Charles Stépanoff revisits an essential aspect of the anthropological tradition through a rich field survey. In Le corps de la Passion. Expériences religieuses et politiques d’une mystique au Liban (Éditions de l’EHESS, 2018), Emma Aubin-Boltanski uses observation and images to analyse a network of feminine mystics between Lebanon and Syria since the 1980s.
One hundred and sixty reviews, finally, testify to the richness of recent editorial production despite the pandemic, and to our common ambition to continue constructing and deconstructing the social sciences of religion.
