where religion may be found or inscribed, the authors reveal the role
of religion in contesting rights to places, to knowledge and to
property, as well as access to resources. Through analyses of specific
historical processes in terms of responses to socio-economic and
political change, the chapters consider implicitly or explicitly the
problematic relation between science including social sciences and
anthropology in particular and religion, and how this connects to the
new religious globalization of the twenty-first century. Their
ethnographies highlight the embodiment of religion and its location in
landscapes, built spaces and religious sites which may be contested,
physically or ideologically, or encased in memory and often in silence.
Taken together, they show the importance of religion as a resource to
the believers: a source of solace, spiritual comfort, and self-willed
submission.
