With a focus on creative practice, your research may not necessarily be guided by an explicit research question or a gap that your research aims to address.
For an example of this singular focus (in this case, Protestant), see, Peter J.
Thuesen, In scientific and technical disciplines, including medicine and health sciences, the literature review is often more narrowly framed around a specific discipline or research area than in the humanities.
In doing so, scholars focus on only the historical facets of predestination doctrine which are applicable to their own view of the concept.
Most works on predestination look at the Protestant concept, with others examining a strict orthodox Catholic interpretation.
This involves identifying and discussing the key concepts, ideas and theories that are relevant to your research.
In addition, it involves analysing the relevant practices, processes and/or work of other practitioners, whether they be architects, artists, designers, musicians, performers, writers or other key practitioners and researchers.
Humanities theses are generally divided into chapters which each deal with an aspect of the research problem.
There is usually also a short literature review in the introduction, to situate and justify the study, but often further appropriate research literature is integrated into each chapter.
In particular, scholars have focused on the abstract, speculative aspects of predestination rather than on the body of doctrine and moral instruction that it involved.
The study of predestination very much revolves around attempting to define the concept for a modern audience, or defining it narrowly regarding one particular theological viewpoint (such as Aquinas or Calvin).
