Spirit mediumship is the most typical aspect of the major religious orientation of the Chinese in Singapore (CS), with their immense range of religious beliefs and practices. Although the focus of this study is upon the spirit-medium cults, it also provides a valuable account of Chinese religious life in Singapore and its social and cultural setting. This is an historical study; the field research was carried out in 1950-1951. The highly personalized nature of these cults has meant that they re short-lived. Also, in the decades since the study, the life of the CS has changed radically, and many of their ritual practices have altered accordingly. But at that time, this research was unique in that it provided info. about how ordinary Chinese conducted their daily ritual affairs.Elliott, Alan J.
