Multiple religious belonging refers to the idea that individuals can belong to more than one religious tradition. While this is often seen as a common reality in regions such as Asia with its many religions, religious scholars have begun to discuss multiple religion belonging with respect to religious traditions such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

One dominant narrative among Catholic theologians and clergy, identified chiefly with the papacy of John Paul II, attributes the decline . Stotts, J. Obedience as Belonging: Catholic Guilt and Frequent Confession in America.

One dominant narrative among Catholic theologians and clergy, identified chiefly with the papacy of John Paul II, attributes the decline in confession to the loss of healthy guilt that took place during the cultural upheaval of the 1960s. In conversation with the work of psychologist and philosopher Antoine Vergote, the present article challenges this narrative, arguing that a collective and unhealthy Catholic guilt existed among American Catholics well before the 1960s and in fact characterized the period in which private confession was practiced most frequently.

Vicarious religion is easy to grasp for Europeans, but sometimes problematic for Americans. But inside it you have Elton John. Then just two years later, I turned the camera around the other way and looked at Europe from the outside. In the book is called Europe: The Exceptional Case, I argue that the patterns of religion in Europe are not a global prototype. Just two or three remarks on believing without belonging, before I move on, because I really don’t want to center on this too much. It is vital to remember that the disjunction of active and inactive, of dropping in or regular commitment, is as common in secular life as it is in religious life.

Religious studies, having struggled to establish a phenomenological approach, has been reluctant to go beyond observation and various interpretive strategies, to theoretical explanation. Insofar as it has ventured into explanation it has been heavily dependent for its theory upon those whose primary field of study is sociology, anthropology, or psychology. This book attempts a general theory of religion on its own terms. Part One lays a foundation for such a scientific study of religion. A comprehensive and essential definition from which to generate a conceptual framework is sought through an examination of the nature of religious experience, of religious discourse, and of types of religious tradition. In Part Two, the consequences of the chosen theoretical understanding are unpacked into a conceptual framework, and phenomena regarded as religious are located within it.
