Description

Sociology in stricto sensu as it is understood today means the study of behavioral patterns in contemporary – mostly Western societies. In the Anglo-Saxon world the historical ramifications of sociology developed into social anthropology, cultural anthropology as well as processional anthropology – to limit the number to three branches – there are more. These different types of sociology imply different methods, and the sociological analyses also of biblical material is dependent of the type of sociology used by the researcher. The example presented is Rainer Albertz’s use of the concept of family religion.
