Health and Ritual in Morocco PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Health and Ritual in Morocco free pdf Dieste analyzes the many notions of the body that appear in various Moroccan medical and religious systems. Adopting an anthropological and historical perspective to the development of Islamic medicine in Morocco, this study highlights the elements of power that define these representations and practices. Mateo Dieste shows that most of the healing rituals challenge the strict division between physical and mental afflictions. Health and Ritual in Morocco provides a valuable structure for understanding Moroccan conceptions of the person, rites of passage, gender differences, and reproductive practices. It offers insights into the weight of the notions of impurity and purification of the body in the daily life of the contemporary Moroccan population.
