Rethinking Public Religions

Author: José Casanova

February 29, 2012

In "Rethinking Public Religions" Casanova argues that his theory espoused in Public Religions in the Modern World, that religion was "de-privatizing" across the globe, had been proven accurate by events occurring in different countries. Casanova opines that the traditionally "secular" West proves his de-privatization theory most clearly. Even though religious practice has not notably appreciated in Europe, religion has reentered politics and the public sphere. This essay was included as a chapter in Rethinking Religion and World Affairs, edited by Professor Timothy Shah, Alfred Stepan, and Monica Toft.
