Abstract

In this paper I shall set out some of the basic ideas and terms underlying my views on the relationship between folkore and the study of religion, and on why I believe this can be such a fruitful partnership. I shall then use the case study of the “Bible of the Folk” tradition in Newfoundland to demonstrate some of these points.
