This issue of Approaching Religion is dedicated to Terhi Utriainen, Professor of the Study of Religions at the University of Helsinki. It is published on the 7 November 2022, Terhi’s sixtieth birthday, and contains reflections and research articles written by Terhi’s colleagues in Finland, the UK and the Netherlands. All the research articles address the theme of rituals, which is one of Terhi’s special foci of interest as a scholar of religion. This editorial first outlines Terhi’s academic career and then introduces the individual texts that make up the issue.
