The theme of the conference of the SIEF Commission for Folk Religion (9–12 September 2006, Celje, Slovenia) was based on two pillars. One was the sensual perception of reality and within this the place of the five human senses (sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste), and the other was religion as a process of cognition, in which the role of sensual perception may differ from one age and one culture to another.


Osnovna tema konference Komisije za ljudsko religijo SIEF (9.–12. september 2006 - Celje, Slovenija) je slonela na dveh temeljih. Prvi pomeni čutno percepcijo resničnosti in znotraj nje mesto petih čutov (vid, sluh, vonj, dotik in okus), drugi pa religijo kot proces spoznavanja, v katerem se vloga čutnega dojemaja lahko razlikuje od ene dobe do druge in ene kulture do druge.
