Religion and the Experience of Nature: Comparative Perspectives

Conference organized by PD Dr. Matthias Egeler (CAS Young Center/LMU).

19.03.2020 – 20.03.2020

Religious engagements with 'nature' have played a prominent role throughout the history of religions to the present day, ranging from the religious use of 'natural' spaces in (not only) prehistoric cultures to religious interpretations of 'nature' in parts of the environmental conservation movement. The conference will bring together scholars from a broad spectrum of disciplines to facilitate an interdisciplinary dialogue that will shed light on the relationship between nature and religion from a broad range of perspectives.

Participants among others: Lisa Sideris (Bloomington), Kocku von Stuckrad (Groningen).

This conference is also supported by the Rachel Carson Center and the DFG Heisenberg Programme.
