It is no exaggeration to say that the study of contemporary Hinduism(s) or Islam(s) in Europe almost surpasses the study of these religions in former periods and in their places of origin. Such developments mirror changing realities in Western Europe. The decline of institutionalized Christendom and a field on the rise The 1960s and 1970s were a watershed both for the European religious landscape and the non-confessional study of religion.
