Description
 
Alan J.A. Elliott. Spirit mediumship is the most typical aspect of the major religious orientation of the Chinese in Singapore (CS), with their immense range of religious beliefs & practices. Although the focus of this study is upon the spirit-medium cults, it also provides a valuable account of Chinese religious life in Singapore & its social & cultural setting. This is an historical study; the field research was carried out in 1950-1951. The highly personalized nature of these cults has meant that they re short-lived. Also, in the decades since the study, the life of the CS has changed radically, & many of their ritual practices have altered accordingly. But at that time, this research was unique in that it provided info. about how ordinary Chinese conducted their daily ritual affairs.
