First, the rite "must follow a strictly prescribed sequence, where everybody knows what to do and how".[12] Second, everything must be done "under the authority of a master of ceremonies".

How even! Exactly the point where I drop out and away from cults, lol

But thanks for the link, I didn't about this particular anthropology school... I was always more into Levi-Strauss, Mauss and Jung's analysis of social rituals, that are also called "integration" structures.

I ain't from this kind of witchcraft cultural background, so at first this read like some very arbitrary, specific cultural reference to a concept a lot of people (including I) aren't aware of. But thanks for the info link.
