About the Course

The last decades have seen a number of gurus establish transnational movements with networks of followers in large parts of the world. The global approach many of these spiritual leaders take on brings interesting questions concerning the tension between tradition and innovation within religious movements. Larger perspectives in the form of globalization processes will be discussed alongside case studies of individual movements.
