Chapter 16 (Page no: 201)

Religious practices and performance in Syrian Shi'ite religious tourism.

This chapter examines the function of religious practices in contemporary religious tourism by introducing a performance approach in tourism studies, using Syrian Shi'ite religious tourism as the case study. Specifically, the characteristics of religious practices and the shared common sense among stakeholders in religious practices are discussed. The data discussed in this chapter is based on a literature review and a field research in the town of al-Sayyedah Zeinab and other Shi'ite religious places in Syria from 2007 to 2011.
