Zdeněk Konopásek & Jan Paleček: Explaining the unexplainable: Scientific and religious truths about apparitions

Presentation at the annual conference of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S), Washington, USA, October 28-November 1, 2009

We are studying how reported phenomena such as having visions of Jesus Christ or seeing and talking to Virgin Mary are practically dealt with – i.e., accounted, doubted, believed, investigated, recognized as true or false… or, as part of all this, translated into something else (for instance, into a psychiatric symptom). Besides analyzing historical material, theological and pastoral literature, thematically related pop-cultural artifacts, contemporary psychiatric cases and respective religious experiences, we conduct an extensive case study of Marian apparitions that took place 1991-95 in Litmanová, Slovakia. Based on this heterogeneous empirical ground, we want to discuss the relationship between religious and scientific approaches to the phenomena: what a how constitutes “the truth” of this or that apparition? Where and when? Although the religious and the scientific are often seen as antagonistic, we offer a more subtle and complex view, in which ambivalence, partiality and practical relevance play important, and often “positive”, affirming roles. The mutual relationship between scientific and religious views of the issue is further complicated by the observation that, for instance, one can identify multiple and often diverging “truths” of apparition within the religious practice. In fact, it is not only us, STS inclined researchers, but religious people themselves (clerics as well as laics), who often appreciate not so much some intrinsic qualities and genuineness of the miraculous events themselves, but rather “all the transformations [the reported encounter] undergo later in the hands of others” (Latour). By focusing on controversial piety and devotionalism “in action”, we try to better understand neglected aspects of contemporary religious life. In this respect, our research can be debated as an(other) application of STS inspired views in the field of religion studies.
