A twenty-fifth anniversary edition of Robert A. Orsi's classic study of popular religion in Italian Harlem. In a new preface, Orsi discusses significant shifts in the field of religious history and calls for new ways of empirically studying divine presences in human life. ""The Madonna of 115th Street" has over the last quarter century become a classic of American religious history. There are few books that I have enjoyed teaching more over the years and even fewer that have taught me as much about American Catholic history."--Leigh E. Schmidt, author of "Hearing Things: Religion, Illusion, and the American Enlightenment"

"The Madonna of 115th Street defined a generation of scholarship in American religion. This new edition demonstrates how its East Harlem world continues to inspire scholars and readers far beyond its parish boundaries."-Kathryn Lofton, Yale University -- Kathryn Lofton "The Madonna of 115th Street has over the last quarter century become a classic of American religious history. There are few books that I have enjoyed teaching more over the years and even fewer that have taught me as much about American Catholic history."-Leigh E. Schmidt, author of Hearing Things: Religion, Illusion, and the American Enlightenment -- Leigh E. Schmidt "Robert Orsi's Madonna is the rarest of the rare, a book that carries us across a threshold and in doing so transforms our understanding of religion."-David D. Hall, Harvard University -- Davd D. Hall
