Example text

The first meaning is familiar from our discussion in the introduction: in the late antique world people believe that they engage with supernatural/cosmological entities, forces, and powers in a material manner through ritual practice and speech. For them, in their time, these supernatural powers are not bodiless, immaterial absolutes or metaphorical symbols; instead they are material, enlivening, and part of local topographies, communities, and histories. The second intended meaning is somewhat more complex: it refers A City of Pluralism and Ambiguity 31 to the manner in which rituals literally move individuals and groups in and around the spaces and places of the city.

For so many it is almost impossible to surrender the embodied ritual and animistic knowledge—even for a golden-mouthed priest. A City of Pluralism and Ambiguity 29 Their ritual sense and animistic sensibility—drawing again here on Bourdieu’s idea of disposition or habitus—is a materially embedded and thus embodied form of knowledge. In their very manner of ritually moving through the city day to day, inhabitants continue to feed Antioch’s enduring religious pluralism. Building upon this chapter, chapter 2 will examine the dimensional depth of the clash and conflict between the inhabitants and John Chrysostom regarding the singular issue of religious identity.

As a measure of control in this chapter, we will maintain a tight, narrow focus on the role that ritual— specifically sacramental ritual—plays in transforming an ecclesiastical conflict into spiritual warfare. The chapter also presents the conclusion for the book as a whole. In fact, many of the observations made in reference to the basilica crisis and relic discovery in Milan serve a second function of pulling together the overarching themes of the book. In Antioch, in the early fall of 386 CE and 387 CE a depletion of congregants during the Jewish High Holidays fuels John Chrysostom’s strong diabolizing rhetoric against Judaizers and, indeed, all Jewish ritual and Jews themselves.
