Example text

As signaled above, however, we 20 L. -L. KEINÄNEN urge feminist theorists to go beyond a view of religious orientation as simply yet another identity marker. Here, we echo other scholars who argue that religion is more than ‘difference’ or ‘identity politics’ for many reasons, most importantly because religious belief and practices cannot be separated from ‘larger webs of historically situated social formations and relations of power’ (Morin and Guelke 2007, xxi). In European political discourse, gender equality and the right to express one’s sexual identity freely are seen as firmly rooted in the secular, liberal tradition of the West.

The public and political role of religion can no longer be denied, but the scholarly task in analyzing religion in Europe goes beyond discussing the confrontation with Islam—although this is and continues to be utterly important. Another important vein of secularization theory’s critique is research focusing on the growth of alternative spiritualities (Heelas and Woodhead 2005; Thurgill 2015; Irving 2015; Fedele and Knibbe, this volume; Utriainen, this volume), a religious trend in Europe that questions the assumptions of the secularization narrative in equally determining ways.
