In the Past, the Present Day and the Future


The essays in this book derive from the Engelsberg Seminar of 2014, and investigate the role which religion plays in society today and in the past. They also explore religion as a phenomenon in relation to the human condition and how it manifests itself as an individual experience. In order to understand ourselves, do we need to understand religion?

This book is not yet published, but will be available from March 2022.

Politics and international relations today cannot be understood without accounting for the element of religion in cultural contexts.
