Description

Goldenberg’s “pushier critique” rightly places an emphasis on the importance of ‘governance’ for understanding the category ‘religion’ in various historical and geographical locations. It is not clear, however, that “institutions of government” play a major role in constructing and maintaining ‘religion,’ or that either “vestigial states” or ‘violence’ are as central for theorizing ‘religion’ as has been suggested.
