"The Religious Phenomenon" considers, from history, sociology, anthropology and psychology, the phenomenon of the unexpected revitalisation of religiousness after the generalised secularisation and rationalisation in the modern age.

This book analyses the relationships between the old religions and the vigour of new religious movements, which are often closely linked to widespread transformations of the social environment and to the mass media. The growth of instability and insecurity provoked by rapid social, economic and technological change coincides with this revitalisation of the search for religious responses for coping with these dimensions of change.
