Chapter Summary

This chapter answers the question: what beliefs about Jesus Christ are found in high and low level participation in popular religiosity, and what is the social location of these beliefs? It first outlines the theological dialectics between the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ in the christological debate. This debate gives rise to different approaches to determine to what extent they feature in Catholic teachings and in popular religiosity. In order to investigate these different christological approaches among our respondents it systematically examines and conceptualises them, indicating that they express different beliefs about Jesus Christ on a dialectical continuum between his divinity and his humanity. Finally it presents an empirical domain of beliefs about Jesus Christ in high and low level popular religious participation in order to answer the empirical-theological question posed in the chapter and to see if the expectations are confirmed.

Keywords: beliefs; Catholic teachings; christological; divinity; humanity; Jesus Christ; popular religiosity; religious participation
