    Researching Vernacular Judaism: Reflections on Theory and Method.Ruth Illman - 2019 - Nordisk judaistik/Scandinavian Jewish Studies 30 (1):91-108.
    This article presents the ethnographically driven multi-method research perspective of vernacular religion and analyses its potential to contribute to the theoretical advancement of Jewish studies. The ongoing discussion on religion and change within the study of religions in gen­eral and Jewish studies in particular is outlined and structured around three ‘turns’ identified in the re­search on vernacular religiosity. To exemplify these theoretical and methodological considerations, a recently initiated research project focusing on vernacular Judaism in Finland is presented. This project seeks (...)

    Religious Diversity.Lionel Obadia & Ruth Illman - 2017 - Approaching Religion 7 (1):1.
