Religious Diversity in Post-Soviet Society: Ethnographies of Catholic Hegemony and the New Pluralism in Lithuania
Milda Alisauskiene, Ingo Schröder
Ashgate Pub., 2012 - History - 212 pages
Since the end of state repression against religion, two major processes have taken place in the formerly socialist countries: historically dominant churches strive to reassert their position in society, while new religious groups and ideas from various parts of the world are proliferating. Religious Diversity in Post-Soviet Society presents the first collection of ethnographies of this new religious diversity for Lithuania. The authors reveal how Catholicism has become increasingly diversified and other religions (Charismatic Protestantism, Baltic Paganism, Eastern religions and other alternative spiritualities) are claiming their space in the religious field.
