Religion and the Secular by Timothy Fitzgerald

Book Description

Religion has dominated colonialism since the 16th century. 'Religion and the Secular' critically examines how religion has been used to subject indigenous concepts to the needs of colonial powers. Essays present the colonial relationship from the perspective of colonized cultures - including Mexico, Guatemala, Vietnam, India, Japan, South Africa and Canada - and colonizing powers, namely England, Germany and the United States. The volume offers a historical and ethnographical analysis of the relationship between the sacred and the secular, examining religion in relation to politics, economics and civil power.

Books By Author Timothy Fitzgerald

Religion and Politics in International Relations by Timothy Fitzgerald Religion and Politics in International Relations, Paperback (October 2011)

Illustrates that the essential distinction between irrational religion and rational secular politics appears as an unquestioned preconception on the basis of which policy is conducted, countries invaded and wars fought. The author demonstrates how a historically contingent discourse has been transformed into a powerful set of global assumptions.

Religion and the Secular by Timothy Fitzgerald Religion and the Secular, Hardback (October 2007)

Religion has dominated colonialism since the 16th century. 'Religion and the Secular' critically examines how religion has been used to subject indigenous concepts to the needs of colonial powers.

Ideology of Religious Studies by Timothy Fitzgerald Ideology of Religious Studies, Paperback (November 2003)

There has been a debate within the religious studies community about the validity of religion as an analytical category. Through an analysis of the use of religion in a range of scholarly texts, the author maintains that the comparative study of religion is really a form of liberal ecumenical theology.
