Key issues in the contemporary debates on culture seem to be
accompanied by the problem of meaning and the dynamics of
it. The global dimension of culture is today a significant
factor of the mentioned transgression, especially when we
speak of cultural identity or intercultural communication.
This book presents critical points of cultural change we may
observe in many areas of local and global ecumene. The
emerging of new currents, processes, and phenomena as well
the transformation of older ones is an evidence of the fact
that culture cannot be regarded as a static whole, enclosed
in a tangible framework of objectified artifacts. Thus
culture is taken here as a specific narrative on human
condition, with all its imponderables. The field where this
regularity might be found is broadly understood religion and
education, which often were combined in various institutions
or in particular political practices.
