This paper seeks to recalibrate Lease's place within what Samuel Preus called the "explanatory tradition" of Religious Studies. While others sought to humanize religion by stressing its latent rationality, Lease humanized religion by stressing that it is constantly interrupted by its own internal movement towards failure. "Failure" is for me the central theme of "The History of 'Religious' Consciousness and the Diffusion of Culture."
