Monograph

Per una mappa delle religioni mondiali

  • Arnaldo Nesti,

Without claiming to reconstruct the typology and psychology of those who live in solitary persuasion, in the secrecy of the soul, in the belief that God is not of this world, or to fully outline the story of those who walk the streets of the world having as a point of reference a church, a synagogue, a mosque, a temple, this volume arises from a much more modest concern, but no less important. The intent is in fact to react to today's religious illiteracy and offer a first picture of the consistency and displacement of the great religions, understood as wide-spread socio-cultural facts disseminated throughout the world. This work thus aims to act as an orientation compass within the enigmatic context of the world of contemporary religions.
