When religiosity and healthcare merge: case studies on sanctification of healthcare interventions with implications for religious literacy
Umeå University, Faculty of Arts, Department of historical, philosophical and religious studies.
2024 (English)In: Culture, spirituality and religious literacy in healthcare: Nordic perspectives / [ed] Daniel Enstedt; Lisen Dellenborg, London: Routledge, 2024, 1, p. 55-74Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter provides examples of how religiosity informs perceptions of health care interventions among Swedish practising Christians living with cancer. These examples are based on a brief account for earlier research on sanctification of health care interventions as a coping method (sanctification is here understood as the process through which aspects of life come to be perceived as having a divine character and/or significance). Based on these examples, a discussion is offered on (1) how religiously informed perceptions of health care interventions can be understood and explained within a framework or religious literacy; (2) why religion matters in a health care context; and (3) that religious literacy could usefully include knowledge of functions of religiosity in coping.
