Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic

The multidisciplinary anthology Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic provides deep insights concerning the current impact of Covid-19 on various religious groups and believers around the world. Based on contributions of well-known scholars in the field of Religious Fundamentalism, the contributors offer about a window into the origins of religious fundamentalism and the development of these movements as well as the creation of the category itself. Further recommendations regarding specific (fundamentalist) religious groups and actors and their possible development within Buddhism, Christianity, Islam and Judaism round up the discussion about the rise of Religious Fundamentalism in the Age of Pandemic.

»I recommend this anthology as a guideline for both science and practice in order to strengthen ourunderstanding of religious perceptions of contagion, fear, debt, and faith that are responsible for theinteraction between certain religious groups and their environment during a pandemic.«
János Besenyo, Terrorism and Politcial Violence, 33/5 (2021)
»Das Buch ist im Lichte der nach wie vor nicht abgewendeten Bedrohung durch das Virus eine sehr interessante und erhellende Lektüre, die globale Verflechtungen [...] aufzeigt und darüber hinaus eine wertvolle Auswertung sehr heterogenen Materials aus dem Bereich der religiösen Extremismusforschung beispielhaft anbietet.«
Isabella Schwaderer, Zeitschrift für Religionswissenschaft, 29 (2021)
