What has been the role and understanding of religion in the
last hundred years, and what can be the meaning of religion
today? There is a well-known ongoing process of
secularization in the Western world. Is there also a return
of religion? And what does the fate of religion mean for an
understanding of the Christian faith? These are topics of
this book. The articles originate from the actual fields of
research of an interdisciplinary group of scholars, who took
part in a symposium held in Bergen Nov. 2019. The
contributions relate to specific contexts in the modern
history of religion from the perspective of religious
studies, theology, philosophy and sociology.

The editors are Hans Bringeland, Assoc.
Prof., and Arve Brunvoll, Prof. emer., both teachers of
theology and philosophy at NLA University College, Bergen,
