Chapter Summary

This bibliography section presents a list of reference articles and chapters for the book Medicine, Religion, and the Body. The book explores the ways in which the body is sacred in Western medicine, as well as how this idea is played out in questions of life and death, of the autopsy and of the meanings attributed to illnesses and disease. Ritual and religious modifications to, and limitations on what may be done to the body raise cross cultural issues of great complexity - philosophically and theologically, as well as sociologically - within medicine and for health care practitioners, but also, as a matter of primary concern for the patient.

Keywords: health care practitioners; Western medicine
