About this book

Following the political and economic transformation processes in Eastern Europe the religious landscapes have also changed. While some countries display a revitalization of religion, others are continuously secularizing.

The book explores this contrast, including different, empirical based studies on the topic in a wide range of Eastern European countries.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This volume brings together ten essays that address religious life and the role of religion in the post-communist European societies. … Transformations of Religiosity: Religion and Religiosity in Eastern Europe 1989–2010 is a book that will be valuable not only for the students of religion in post-communist societies but for anyone interested in the power and authority that religious traditions and religious institutions continue to have in late modernity.” (Slavica Jakelić, Journal of Contemporary Religion, Vol. 29 (2), 2014)
