The effective study of religion involves many disciplines and methods, from psychology to sociology, and from textual analysis to case studies in the field.

It also requires an awareness of key thematic issues such as gender, science, fundamentalism, ritual, mysticism, and new religious movements.

Containing everything needed for a full understanding of theory and methods in religious studies, »The Routledge Companion to the Study of Religion»: surveys the history of religious studies and the key disciplinary approaches, shows how to apply theories and methods to practical study, highlights contemporary issues such as globalization, diaspora and politics, explains why the study of religion is relevant in today's world, gives guidance on theory and methods, and on how to succeed in study courses.

Beginning by explaining the most important methodological approaches to religion, including psychology, philosophy, anthropology and comparative study, the text then moves on to explore a wide variety of critical issues.

Written entirely by renowned international specialists, and using clear and accessible language throughout, it is the perfect guide to the problems and questions found in exams and on courses. [Språk: Engelska] Häftad
