Chapter Summary

In the discussion about the major impacts of the globalization process on recent and contemporary religious life, a prominent place is given to consequences of the increase in various global flows, and especially in migration flows, such as deterritorialization, delocalization, transnationalization and the emergence, in an unprecedented scope, of virtual religious communities. A comparative approach is applied to some recent and contemporary religious perceptions of and attachments to territory, by looking at several different cases. Multiculturalism relates to the degree of intra-religious and inter-religious tolerance. The chapter discusses the examination of the seven cases that reveals differences with regard to perceptions of and attachments to territory. One such difference relates to the scope of the territorial unit involved in religious perceptions and attachments.

Keywords: inter-religious tolerance; multiculturalism; religious communities; territorial unit
