Description

Since the earliest attempts to treat the nation and nationalism as objects of academic inquiry, a central and recurrent question while examining these phenomena has been their relationship to religion. Attempts to define the nation and nationalism have involved comparing and contrasting them with other powerful forms of collective identification and mobilization, one of which is religion. Studies of the relationship of religion to the nation and nationalism comprise a vast body of literature that offers divergent, conflicting and often incommensurable positions and values.
