Abstract

“Rite of passage” is a core concept in the ritual or religion research. From premier use in 1909 to nowadays, the “rite of passage” has not a clear definition yet. After analyzing the usages in van Gennep’s famous book, and Turner’s developments in 1960s, we have not found an exclusive meaning. We argue that “rite of passage” should not be used as a concept in future scholarly study.
