Secular and Civil Religion - RLST4116

Year - 2019

Peter Berger defined secularisation as "the process whereby sectors of society and culture are removed from the domination of religious institutions and symbols", which does not fit with the non-institutional religious forms that have emerged since the 1960s. Definitions of 'religion', 'religious', 'secular', and 'sacred' are the focus of this unit.
