Constellations of Value

European Perspectives on the Intersections of Religion, Politics and Society

Edited by: Christoph Jedan

In Western public discourse, there is a long tradition of opposing secular and religious values. In consequence, religion has been increasingly excluded from the public domain and relegated to the realm of personal motivation. From different perspectives, this present collection of essays shows that religion still has an important role to play in the public domain. In exploring the possibility of a rapprochement between religious and secular values, the book's contributions offer important insights for ongoing debates on the question whether Western, and particularly European, democracies have entered a "post-secular" phase.
