Chapter: 22. J. Z. Smith’s Gift

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.39835


In this essay, originally a blog post published on The Bulletin for the Study of Religion, Bruce Woll ruminates on the significant role that Jonathan Z. Smith played in his doctoral experience and his career. He draws readers to the importance of the connection Smith makes between religion and thinking and the way that awareness of such a connection can enliven our understanding of our subject matter.
