自1980年代开始的都市化对乡村的影响，可由民间宗教窥见诸多痕迹田。以广东汕头盐灶乡拖老爷习俗为例，通过对其缘起的推论发现，拖老爷仪式极可能属于“杀神”习俗；对比其历史和现状，则发现它已较少保留原本宗教内涵。但园其满足当下人们对人与人。以及人与神的暴力冲突等违禁行动的向往，同时也作为盐灶乡地痞四势力的展演场域。得以改造留存。而从先辈以神为中心的体力晨演，发展到现今以人为中心的势力展演．“力量”的隐形化和仪式的断裂嫁接，皆展现了都市化对盐灶乡经济结构和宗族组织的冲击和瓦解的过程。The urbanization from the 1980s can be seen from the village folk religion. Taking tile custom of Struck God in Yanzao as an example, the origin of the legend suggested that this custom was probably one form of Sacrificed King custom. The comparison between its past and present reveals that the ceremony inherited few original elements. Due to its satisfying people＇ s yearning for rationalization of violence and other illegal feelings, it continued existence while undergo- ing change. In recent years, local force exerted influence on the religious ceremony, and also manifested the sacrificed king from the performance of body force to the performance of local power. It was the invisibility of ＂power＂ and the change of the ceremony, which showed the process how rural urbanization disorganized the traditional village.
