Holy War’ and Gender. ‚Gotteskrieg’ und Geschlecht

Violence in Religious Discourses. Gewaltdiskurse in der Religion Lit Verlag (Reihe Berliner Gender Studies), Münster 2006, 269 Seiten, € 19,90

In modern societies we seem to witness a renaissance of religious thought and religious passion that a times leads to violent action. ‘Holy Wars’ are part of this ‘renaissance’, but it is not the least clear whether this ‘holiness’ us a relict of religion, a return of religious thinking, or rather the new face of modernity that dons the mask of religion.

This collection aims at a better understanding of the implications of modern warfare – its form and its causes – for Gender Studies. Gender has on many occasions proven to be a very useful interpretative tool in deciphering historical, cultural and socio-economical subtexts of the modern world.
