For the sacrifice shelamim in the "Hebrew Bible", scholars have suggested a number of different interpretations and uses. This sacrifice also had an ambiguous role in Israelite culture. Lack of a general consensus and the failure to reach a satisfying solution makes the shelamim a puzzle and an interesting sacrifice to investigate with insights gained from modern ritual studies. In this study, it is suggested that an investigation of ritual issues should start in the situation that creates the need for the performance, not in an analysis of the ritual's form or content. Rituals are here understood as human reactions to various causes, that is, events in nature or culture. Determining a ritual's cause is the first step in a ritual analysis.
