02: Children in Worship and The Agency of Children

October 18, 2021

A conversation with Lydia van Leersum. She is a cultural anthropologist and conducts research on children (age 0-12) in liturgical practices at the OJKC.

In this podcast more about her research on children in worship and liturgical practices, and the agency of children. Also some findings of the research on children in relation to what is called 'material religion', meaning here, how children respond to sound, objects and the environment of a building, particularly ancient buildings, and in what way this influences the participation of children in worship and liturgical practices.

Children's spirituality and children's theology are also topics in this conversation, as well as the question: what do children bring to the worship and liturgy of the community?
