Minority Religions and Uncertainty (Routledge Inform Series on Minority Religions and Spiritual Movements)


Reseña del editor Religious organizations are at their core about creating certainty. But what happens when groups lose control of their destiny? Whether it leads to violence (as in the case of Aum Shinrikyo’s in 1995), or to non-violent innovations, as found in minority religions following the death of their founders or leaders (as in the case of the Worldwide Church of God), uncertainty and insecurity can lead to great change in the mission and even teachings of religious groups. Minority Religions and Uncertainty brings together an international team of contributors from a range of perspectives to explore the uncertainty faced by new and minority religious movements as well as non-religious fringe groups. Biografía del autor Kim Knott is Professor of Religious and Secular Studies in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University. She works in the study of religions, using sociological and geographical approaches in particular to research relationships between the religious and the secular, and the location of religion in ostensibly secular institutions, bodies and discourses. She has researched religion in relation to diasporas and migration, ethnicity, terrorism, gender, identity, and public life, and has held research grants for much of this work. She developed a spatial approach for studying religion in secular contexts, for examining its engagement with other social and cultural institutions and issues, and for ’breaking open the secular’ and understanding secularist and other non-religious ideologies and beliefs. She has used this approach to examine the location of religious and secular values in an English medical centre and high school, in urban multicultural landscapes, and the media. She recently followed up earlier research with a project on British media portrayals of religion and the ’secular sacred’ which compared media coverage and representations from the early 1980s with those from 2008-10. In the past she researched and published extensively in modern Hindu Studies as well as on New Religious Movements. She is currently an RCUK-funded Global Uncertainties Leadership Fellow. Matthew Francis is a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University. He researches the role that beliefs, commitments and ideologies make in decision-making in the face of risk and uncertainty. This work builds on previous research where he analysed the move to violence in religious and non-religious groups. His research maps the significance of collective non-negotiable beliefs through coding the public utterances of members and leaders of groups and has previously focused on case-studies including Aum S
