Description

This collection of essays argues that religious perceptions of the self, of community, and of the state are transformed when Western discourses of modernity become dominant in the modern world. The book relates to the European to the non-Western by exploring conversion both in modern Europe and in the colonized world. Conversion is shown to be an innovative practice, intimately related to the transformation of the social sphere. Broad and comprehensive, Conversion to Modernities provides new and important insights in modernity, colonialism and Christian discourse.
