Comparative Study of Religion

An informed and scholarly study of religion requires a comparative and interdisciplinary approach. In this department, religion is addressed in all its forms and appearances. Historians, anthropologists, sociologists and psychologists are working together to critically investigate religion as a cultural factor that is so influential in the modern world. Our expertise covers method and theory in the study of religion, the changing faces of religion in a global perspective, as well as the historical dimension of current religious discourses. Of particular importance for our research and teaching is the critical analysis of constructions of “Eastern” and “Western” forms of religion.
