The Brethren in Scotland > The Religious Studies Project

A new interview by me at The Religious Studies Project – speaking to my friend the anthropologist Joseph Webster about the Brethren of Gardenstoun on the Aberdeenshire coast:

Anthropology “at home” – within our own culture, rather than that of some exotic Other – undermines many of the assumptions that the study of religion is based upon, and has the power to make “the strange familiar, and the familiar strange”.
