Description

In this essay, originally a blog post published on The Bulletin for the Study of Religion, Matt Sheedy argues that Jonathan Z. Smith’s work on comparison, classification, and taxonomy has the potential to teach all his readers that “the study of religion is a boundless field, limited only by our imagination.”
