Global events such as the political mobilization of religious fundamentalisms throughout the world, a U.S. foreign and domestic policy driven by a “faith-based presidency,” the changing religious demographics of a once predominantly Catholic Latin America, and the rise of secularism in the Middle East demand that scholars reconsider the political, social, and cultural history of religions, past and present. This special issue offers a critical perspective on the history of religion, attempting to comprehend the violence engendered by religious differences as well as the ways that religious institutions have provided sources for powerful critiques of modernity, the nation-state, the market, slavery, European colonial rule, and racial supremacy.
