[PUBLISHED] Religion in Representations of Europe: Shared and Contested Practices

We are pleased to announce that the outcomes of our last research project “Imagining Europe” has now been published as open source book with Nomos.


What is Europe exactly? How are ideas of Europe represented? What do we think of when we speak about religion in representations of Europe? And how does religion shape these conceptions? What are their effects? There is no single answer to these questions because there are too many different ideas of what Europe and religion should have been, are or need to be in the past, present and future respective-ly. This volume focuses on case studies in which ideas and concepts become crystallised: a text, a work of art, a building, an exhibition, a map, a film festival, a song or a meal.
