Abstract

This article presents an inductive study of the Levite conversion experience, based on the analysis of the conversion of thirty-five individuals. Their conversion experience is compared with the empirical findings and the generalizations of other social scientists regarding religious conversion. While this study demonstrates that relative deprivation is an essential factor in all cases of conversion, a multivariate approach is proposed to explain conversion to small religious sects.
