Is it possible to define religion?
Dr. Judith Plaskow discusses the only use of her definition of religion, which is in the classroom. She defines the word as “a set of myths, rituals, and symbols that relate ultimate action to reality”. Dr. Plaskow concentrates on myths, rituals, and symbols rather than institutional religion in her teaching, and more importantly emphasizes understanding the concept of what is religion’s “ultimate reality” – another way of investigating what we would call the transcendent.
