Abstract
This source is a detailed descriptive account of Javanese religion in Modjokuto. It is divided into three sections. The section on Abangan religion includes information on the slametan rituals, spirit beliefs, curing, sorcery, magic, and the Permai cult. The section on Santri religion includes information on the Santri vs. the Abangan, the development of Islam in Modjokuto, conservatives vs. moderns, the internal organization of the Santri community, Muslim law and education, and the Santri ritual pattern. The section on the religion of the Prijaji includes information on Prijaji belief and etiquette, classical and popular art, mysticism, and the mystical sects. Geertz concludes the source with a discussion of disruptive and integrative factors in this sort of religious environment.
