Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of names of authors, reference articles and books relevant to study of global religions. Religion may serve as an identity marker in the maintenance of ethnic, social or political stability, but it can also serve as an identity marker in conflicts of similar nature. Religion can promote discourses of oppression that regulate relations between genders, generations, classes, or other social groups. The academic study of religion has drawn heavily on Western traditions of scholarship, that have themselves been shaped by the Enlightenment separation of church and state.

Keywords: church; global religions; Western traditions
