The global manifestation of different forms of religion and religiosity raises the question of why such differences emerge. This volume includes contributions that contextualise religion within varying social configurations and dynamics. Such conditions may comprise social history, ideas and culture, structure, institutions, practices and beliefs or convictions. This book considers social orders like gender, everyday life or economics, the institutions of the state and law as well as the dynamics of migration, transformation and modernisation to be important contexts that shape religion. It uses selected empirical examples to emphasise the mechanisms of how religion is shaped, realised and changed, and will appeal to readers who are interested in how religion and religiosity are socially embedded.
