Specific: the study of religious behaviour, particularly in the form of ritual behaviour (rites/rituals, festivities, the symbolic order, techniques of reflection and meditation, the experience of the sacred in nature, changing iconography, the spatial dimension of religion) and in the form of sensory expressions and experiences (with special emphasis on body, bodiliness, and the senses)
