Abstract

In social science, ritual is a concept often used, especially in religion study. But we have not a successful definition of ritual yet. This means we can not distinguish it from normal behavior. Many anthropologists have endeavored to define ritual, while they all failed because they lacked an adequate theory of social action. Belief theory is a new general theory of social science. Basing on it, we attempt to make religion ritual clear.
