This volume brings together essays by such eminent scholars like Shmuel N. Eisenstadt, Mary Douglas, Thomas Luckmann, Reinhart Koselleck, and Jan Assmann on the topic of politics and religion. The relationship between religious and cultural visions on the one hand and socio-political structures on the other becomes elaborated from a wide historical and culturalist perspective. These accounts are flanked by contributions of a younger generation of scholars that focus on new aspects of secularisation.The book aims at reviving the interdisciplinary discourse on a matter which seems to be crucial to the question of future solidarity between different cultures and religions in a globalising world.
