(p.1) Introduction
Liturgical Power

Nicholas Heron

Fordham University Press

The introduction positions the book’s argument in relation to the twentieth-century debate on political theology, with a particular emphasis on the contemporary Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben’s recent revaluation of it. This revaluation, the introduction contends, necessitates an overhaul of the prevailing conceptual lexicon of political theology. The ensuing book will seek to delineate the specific technology of power whose forms and whose modalities become discernible only in the light of this overhaul.

Keywords:   Giorgio Agamben, economic theology, Michel Foucault, governmentality, liturgy, Erik Peterson, political theology, Carl Schmitt, secularization, sovereignty
