6. Description Abstract This chapter proposes a new model for understanding the ways that scriptures function. It theorizes the nature of scriptures as a function of their ritualization in three dimensions—semantic, performative, and iconic. It also provides a means for conceptualizing how traditions ritualize scriptures and how they claim and negotiate social power through this process.
