Additional Information: a]. SOCIOLOGY b]. An examination and analyses of the phenomenon of ‘bodiless music’, ‘musical disemobodiment’, or ‘hostility to the body’, from the sociological and theological canon. c]. Within the background of Herbert Spencer’s essential contributions on the relationship between music and dance, this paper discusses Augustine’s medieval influence against dancing in church, and how this has contributed to shaping the differential identity patterns among contemporary Christian religious groups; plus Weber’s critical role in setting the records straight that this is not due to conservative Eurocentricism. The paper explains the evolution of this process in relation to church music and captures the reverse impact of Sub-Saharan migrations to Western Europe and North America as a result of the African Pentecostal explosion dating from the 1980s. f]. This is a journal article.
