Religion in a Changing World: Comparative Studies in Sociology

By Madeleine Cousineau | Go to book overview

seek to find places and ways to express their spirituality free of male domination ( Wynack 1996).

These efforts are greatly facilitated by increased global travel and communication. Pilgrims have long been the agents of cultural diffusion as they go to the sacred places of their religion and encounter others who do things differently, who have variant beliefs, or who wish to learn. Moreover, on their way these pilgrims encounter other cultures whether they go to Mecca, the Ganges, St. James de Compostella, the Vatican, Lourdes, Sedona, Uluru, or just to the next city. Given this it is very likely that Australia's religious life will continue to increase in diversity through cultural diffusion. It may even make a novel contribution.


NOTE

I wish to thank James T. Richardson for carefully reading and commenting on this chapter and for his suggested inclusions.
