6. Description Abstract This chapter argues that the central ideological effects of tradition are achieved by framing framing beliefs, practices, institutions etc. as independent from intentional agency: i.e., as passed down unchanging, not as constructed, negotiated, modified, etc. Strong parallels with the work of ritual will be briefly explored. This highlights the gap between tradition as social and cultural construct and tradition as unaltered gift from the past, from a trans-historical origin, from a deity, etc. The goal is to point out that this gap offers a privileged site within which conceptions of the sacred, the divine, etc. can be projected or constructed. (The main example here will be Orthodox Christianity.)
