Theories about Religion and Secularity

Led by Yvonne Dehnes
Jan 1997 - Dec 2002
This project in religious studies examines the meaning of the secular in Western political thought. The aim is to elucidate different aspects of secularity in Western contexts. After establishing a workable theory of secularity, the project discusses theoretical models from the Islamic context in which arguments and developments concerning secularity that are similar and dissimilar to those seen in the Christian West can be traced.
