Living in Refuge

Ritualization and Religiosity in a Christian and a Muslim Palestinian Refugee Camp in Lebanon

This comparative ethnography of a Muslim and a Christian Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon focuses on contrasting social belonging processes through a ritualization approach. Leonardo Schiocchet argues that contrasts emerge out of the intersectionality of religiosity, nationhood, refugeeness and politics, and synthesizes academic research on piety and moral self-cultivation and on the everyday life of religious communities. He contributes to the literature on refugees at large, and Palestinian refugees in particular, with the unique dense socio-historical portrait of two refugee camps for which there is almost no recorded literature.

Endorsement
»The book clearly illustrates and deconstructs how religion, nation politics, identity, and belonging can be integrated into the daily life of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. This is a must read for anyone interested in gaining a deep insight into Palestinian lives in refuge in Lebanon.« (Dawn Chatty, Emerita Professor of Anthropology and Forced Migration, University of Oxford)
