Spiritualizing the City

Full Product Description

This book develops new theoretical vocabulary for analyzing the relationship between the city and religious belief and practice, and seeks to understand how religion is being lived by people today. It explores the complex interplay between the (post) modern city and new religious and spiritual movements. The focus of this book relies on new religious expressions, cosmologies, and ways of life that go beyond established belief systems and religious understandings. The book develops an ethnography-based analysis of the ways in which the 'urban' inscribes itself into various religious practices and vice versa, and how religiosity and spirituality appropriate and transform the meanings of the urban. The sharp distinction between cities and rural areas is vanishing and most people now lead an urban or semi-urban life. As such, the book explores a new conceptualization of the word urban that is tightly linked with qualitative ethnographic research on the ground. The book also explores how cities as both considered as sites and sources where the globalization of religions takes place, as well as the fact that globalization is closely linked to the process of localization.
The socio-cultural and political uniqueness of the specific urban context are analyzed.
