In a masterful evocation of Italian Harlem and the men and women who lived there, Robert A. Orsi examines how the annual festa of the Madonna of 115th Street both influenced and reflected the lives of the celebrants. His prize-winning book offers a new perspective on lived religion; the place of religion in the everyday lives of men, women, and children; the experiences of immigration and community formation; and American Catholicism. In a new preface, Orsi discusses significant shifts in the field of religious history and calls for new ways of studying divine presences in human life. Book jacket.
