How far will an account of ritualized behavior go in explaining cultural rituals?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (6):623-624 (2006)

The theory of ritualized behavior should offer insight about cultural rituals. Considering ritualized behaviors' scripted actions and both the frequent absence of anxiety and the routinization of many cultural rituals, questions remain about how much and what precisely gets explained. Among religious rituals, ritualized behaviors arise more strikingly in special agent rituals, but that might be because they usually include novices. (Published Online February 8 2007).
