Vernacular Religion

Immigrant Perspectives from North-East Scotland

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The context-dependent nature of vernacular religionrenders it particularly susceptible to change, small or great, when faced with the tensions ofmigratory crossroads and the foreignness of new environments. In interviews with immigrants innortheast Scotland, the ostensibly contradictory concepts of flexibility and rigidity emerge as twokey aspects in preserving the inherent value of vernacular religion, if not always its exact shape.With the benefit of audio recordings from these interviews, I present and analyze the words ofcontributors discussing how moving to Scotland has affected both faith and practice
