Notes

INTRODUCTION

1. Essays by Edward Schieffelin, Thomas J. Csordas, Robert R. Desjarlais, and Charles L. Briggs, The Performance of Healing, ed. Carol Laderman and Marina Roseman (New York: Routledge, 1996) have been particularly important in the development of my understanding of religious healing.

2. An important source on the history of Christian forgiveness and its relation to healing is John T. McNeill, A History of the Cure of Souls (1951; New York: Harper & Row, 1977).

3. John Winthrop, "A Model of Christian Charity" (1629), The American Puritans: Their Prose and Poetry, ed. Perry Miller (New York: Anchor Books, 1956), 83.

4. Catherine Bell, Ritual Theory, Ritual Practice (New York: Oxford University Press, 1992), 81-93.

5. Janet Hoskins, "From Diagnosis to Performance: Medical Practice and the Politics of Exchange in Kodi, West Sumba," in Laderman and Roseman, The Performance ofHealing, 288.

6. Anne Harrington, introduction to The Placebo Effect: An Interdisciplinary Exploration, ed. Anne Harrington (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1997), 4-6.

7. R. J. Herrnstein, "Placebo Effect in the Rat," Science 138 (1962): 677678.

8. William James, Varieties of Religious Experience (1902; New York: New American Library, 1958), 30.
