BeschreibungAn ethnography of female asceticism and spiritual practice in Japan.
PortraitEllen Schattschneider is Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Brandeis University.
Pressestimmen"In this pioneering study of ascetic ritual practice in northern Honshu, Japan, Ellen Schattschneider takes what, in other hands, could have been a more traditional subject and infuses it with a conceptual sharpness that makes its analyses of interest to far more than specialists in religion, Japan, or nature-based worship." Anne Allison, Duke University "Rich in ethnographic detail on a topic that is fascinating and important, Immortal Wishes is a very clear description and analysis of the actual doing of mountain ascetic discipline, and of its theological, emotional, and social context." L. Keith Brown, University of Pittsburgh
