Religious Change in the Modern Age

A new episode of the video series “Religion and Politics – Research Projects in Focus“

What do people think of other religions? Do people in modern societies feel threatened by foreign cultures? Do they have prejudice against other religions? When sociologist of religion Prof. Dr. Detlef Pollack receives the results of his representative surveys on religion and ideology, it is a special moment: the thoughts and feelings of the entire population stretch out before him. Together with his research team, he evaluates the data in detail. What the team finds out about religious attitudes and practices, about acceptance of foreign religions and resistance to them, is what Prof. Pollack reports in a new episode of the video series Research Projects in Focus. The film presents his research project “Religious Change in the Modern Age” at the Cluster of Excellence “Religion and Politics” of Münster University. (maz/vvm)
