Abstract
The article characterizes a paradigmatic change in ritual studies in the last twenty years, by discussing the impact of the ‘performative turn’ in the social sciences for the analysis of ritual action and ritual efficacy. Two streams of theories are distinguished, (1) studies that re-conceptualize the relation between ritual and its social contexts, viewing it as a dynamic encounter that includes negotiation, adjustment and persuasion, (2) and studies that explore the inner dynamic of ritual and characterize the activities and media that turn ritual action into transformative performances.
