Paul-François Tremlett is a Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies at the Open University in the UK. He was awarded his PhD from the School of Oriental and African Studies in London. He is currently interested in processes of rapid social change and intersections of politics and religion.


This chapter considers some of the different ways Marx talked about religions in his writings before looking more closely at how they are implicated in Marx’s base-superstructure model of society, particularly in relation to the concept of ideology.
