Chapter Summary

The presence of Christians and Muslims living side by side with Hindus for centuries, preserving their own identities while interacting with others, makes Tamil Nadu a suitable place for a comparative study of cross-religious ritual participation among the followers of the three religions. Insofar as college students may reflect the emerging trend in cross-religious ritual participation, the author opted to carry out the empirical research among college students in Tamil Nadu. After the brief account of the focus and the context of research, an overview of its articulation is in order. This chapter elaborates the conceptual framework comprising models of interaction among religions, spheres of cross-religious ritual participation, and models of interpreting religious pluralism. Then, it describes the empirical research design in its essential elements before reporting the results, and finally it discusses the salient features of the findings.

Keywords: Christians; cross-religious ritual participation; Hindus; Muslims; religious pluralism; Tamil Nadu
