The relationship between religion and politics has been explored systematically since the very inception of modern social sciences. This volume tackles this classical topic anew. Its chapters offer fresh ethnographic empirical evidence, up-to-date analyses, as well as an original theoretical discussion on the entanglements between these two spheres. In particular, focus is drawn on three dimensions that characterise the politics of religion in the very different societal contexts explored in this book: those pertaining to religious authority, creativity, and conflicts, all within the globalised, interconnected world of the 21st century.
