Significations : signs, symbols, and images in the interpretation of religion by Charles H Long( Book )

Significations is a criticism of several major approaches (phenomenological, historical, theological) to the study of religion in the United States, in which the author attempts (1) a reevaluation of some of the basic issues forming the study of religion in America, (2) an outline of a hermeneutics of conquest and colonialism generated during the formation of the social and symbolic order called the "New World," and (3) a critique of the categories of civil religion, innocence, and theology from the perspective of the black experience and the experience of colonized peoples. "Significations, a landmark in the History of Religions, will remain a durable classic in the discipline for a long time to come. The beauty of the book, in part, lies in Charles Long's ability to draw immensely from African American and Indigenous traditions and his personal experiences, to provide theoretical insights into issues of meanings and significance of religion in our contemporary world. This book is certainly one of the most original and provocative texts in Religious Studies available to us today."--Jacob Olupona

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles H. Long is one of the most influential and pioneering scholars in the study of religion from the past 50 years. This is the first comprehensive collection of his writings, edited by Long himself, and contains 38 pieces, including both published and previously unpublished articles, lectures, an interview, and two book reviews. The foreword is provided by Jennifer Reid, a former student of Long. The collection is divided into four thematic parts: America and the Study of Religion; Theory and Method in the Study of Religion; African American Religion in the United States; Kindling, Sparks, and Embers. Long's introduction provides much-awaited insight into his reflections on his work, expanding on questions that remained unanswered in his classic and influential text, Significations: Signs, Symbols, and Images in the Interpretation of Religion (1986). In particular, the new introductory essay explores the significance of "ellipses", that which is omitted, the projected spaces of the Other in the study of religion. Considered the preeminent founder and advocate of the study of Black Religion, Long was exploring religion and colonialism and the importance of Afro-American religion as early as the 1960s and early 1970s, and this collection of his thinking -- which moves across the formations of religious studies, African diasporic studies, and social and cultural theory -- is a must-have addition for any institutional or personal library."--Bloomsbury Publishing
