Liturgical studies

In 2011 Peter Lang launched the series Liturgical studies, edited by Silvia A. Sweeney.

The inaugural volume, Embodying the feminine in the dances of the world’s religions by Angela M. Yarber, explores bharata nāṭyam, a classical Indian genre stemming from the devadāsī tradition; kabuki onnagata, Japanese male enactors of female-likeness; the Mevlevi Order of America, which allows women to train as whirling dervishes; and Gurit Kadman, who created folk dances for Jewish women and men.
