Welcome

Welcome to the 16th Annual Conference of the European Association for the Study of Religions!

The Annual Conference of the EASR is about to demonstrate once again the strength and variety of the scientific study of religion in Europe. With 158 sessions, six keynote lectures and a total of 538 papers this yearʹs conference continues the steady growth in at- tendance that we have seen over the past few years. This record of success is due not least to the devotion of our national member as- sociations, who freely undertake the hard work of organising our conferences and confront the many challenges involved with ener- gy and professionalism. Each year, they also manage to come up with a conference theme that proves to be attractive and inspiring, spawning a host of sessions on a great variety of topics that never- theless appear interconnected when viewed through the lens of the common theme.

This yearʹs theme, ‘multiple religious identities’ is no exception. Of acute contemporary relevance in an age of ‘multiculturalism’, the questions raised by confronting the terms ‘religion’, ‘identity’ and ‘multiplicity’ have universal importance in the history of religions. They serve to probe fundamental assumptions in our field of study, they can be approached empirically with a variety of interdiscipli- nary methodologies, they open new insights by means of cross- cultural and cross-historical comparison.

On behalf of the EASR I would like to thank the Swiss Society for the Study of Religions, and our Bern colleagues in particular, for

5

their hard work in creating the platform that enables us to meet our European colleagues this year, to learn, debate, be inspired, and collaborate.

I wish you all a wonderful conference!

Einar Thomassen EASR President

Welcome to the ‘Preeminent European Forum for the Academic Study of Religion’!

[…] while it is rather easy to call up the general idea of “Eu- rope”, it is not so easy to find the right organizational form for a European association which would respect both the in- ternational framework of the IAHR and the interests of its very supportive member associations,

said (IAHR Bulletin, 36, July 2000, 37) the then IAHR President, Mi- chael Pye, in a letter in which he informed the European IAHR member associations of the establishment of the EASR, – in Kra- ków, Poland, May 2000.

When welcoming the participants, members of the IAHR, the EASR, as well as the various national associations, to this 2018 IAHR Regional and EASR Annual Conference in Bern, I find it safe to say this: the EASR, beyond a doubt, did the trick! The EASR has proved to be exactly that, the one and only European association for the academic study of religion. Respecting and supporting the IAHR and now also the EASR national member associations, asso-

6

ciations which, time and again, have proved supportive of the EASR as well as of the IAHR. Inter alia by frequently hosting the annual EASR conferences and also IAHR Regional or Special con- ferences.

I therefore gratefully extend, on behalf of the IAHR Executive Committee, my sincere thanks to the EASR and its member associa- tions for their continuous support and steadfast efforts in helping to promote and strengthen the historical, social, and comparative study of religion. While the IAHR, proudly, and I think, rightly, claims to be the “preeminent international forum for the critical, analytical and cross-cultural study of religion, past and present”, the EASR, proudly and rightly, I think, can claim the same with re- gard to Europe.

This Bern 2018 conference, gracefully hosted by the Swiss Society for the Study of Religions (SGR-SSSR), no doubt will provide evi- dence of this, and I thank the Swiss and local organisers for their highly skilled and efficient preparatory work and cooperation. Considering the long list of eminent past and present Swiss schol- ars of religion, and the impact of their scholarship on the furthering of the international, academic study of religion, I think it is now ‘high time’ for the EASR as well as the IAHR to pay tribute to the Swiss Society for the Study of Religions and thus to Swiss scholar- ship on religion.

Allow me to direct a personal ‘thank you’ to Prof. Jens Schlieter, the President of the Swiss Association for the Study of Religion, for his collaboration and kind willingness to also accommodate (in be- tween two IAHR world congresses) the 2018 IAHR International Committee Meeting.

7

Last, but not least, allow me to extend special thanks to the EASR President and General Secretary, Profs. Einar Thomassen and Marco Pasi. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to collaborate with you, – also in regard with the need for a prompt response to an outspoken challenge to the EASR, and thus also to the IAHR. Your reflections and balanced yet clear responses, including the joint statement of the EASR and the IAHR (see http://www.easr.eu- /2018/02/20/easr-iahr-joint-statement-on-the-european-academy-of- religion/), left no doubt, neither did the outspoken support re- ceived from member associations. The EASR, a regional IAHR member association, with its European corporative and individual members and its annual conferences, is the preeminent European forum for the academic study of religion.

Tim Jensen IAHR President

To the attendants and delegates of the EASR 2018 Conference in Bern

It is a great pleasure to welcome the attendees of the EASR to Bern for its annual conference (which is also a regional congress of the IAHR). We are particularly honoured as this is the first year that the conference will be held in Switzerland. The response to the con- ference has been overwhelming, and I would like to express my gratitude to all colleagues, committees, and collaborators who of- fered their kind help in making the event a reality. Preparing for the conference can be demanding, but as Friedrich Nietzsche puts it: “In all moments when we do our best, we do not work. Work is

8

only a means for achieving these moments” (“In allen Augenblick- en, wo wir unser Bestes thun, arbeiten wir nicht. Arbeit ist nur ein Mittel zu diesen Augenblicken“). Therefore, I do hope you will ex- perience the conference as one of such moments – whether in pre- senting and discussing your work, socialising with colleagues, or, last but not least, in enjoying the beautiful city of Bern.

Jens Schlieter
President of the SGR-SSSR, the Swiss Society for the Study of Religion Conference Director

Bern and Bern Tourism
The City of Bern and its Attractions

“It is the most beautiful city that we have ever seen.”

These are the words that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe used to de- scribe Bern in a letter to his friend Charlotte von Stein during his stay in the city in 1779. Founded in the 12th century, Bern devel- oped from a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire to a large city-state of the Old Swiss Confederacy to the capital or “federal city” of the modern federal state. Today, Bern still enchants its visi- tors with its charm. It is the fourth-largest city in Switzerland (with ca. 140ʹ000 inhabitants; 400ʹ000 incl. urban agglomeration) and is located in the German-speaking part of the country.

Bern offers much to experience, here are some of the attractions:

The Old Town

At the heart of Bern is its beautiful Old Town with six kilometres of arcades that offer shelter or shade to visitors strolling through the city. Besides these unique arcades, Bernʹs historical townscape, da- ting back to 1191, is characterized by the Clock Tower (Zytglogge), the Prison Tower (Käfigturm), the Renaissance sculptural foun- tains, the Cathedral (Münster), and the well-kept sandstone fa- cades. Visitors can discover bars, cultural venues, and specialty shops in countless converted cellars. Thanks to its well-preserved medieval townscape, the Old Town of Bern, surrounded by the river Aare, was entered onto UNESCOʹs listing of World Heritage Sites in 1983.

10

The Bern Minster

The Bern Minster is Switzerlandʹs largest ecclesiastical building. Construction started in 1421 and continued under a series of differ- ent builders for generations. The spire was finally completed in 1893. The portal with its depiction of the Last Judgment is one of its most remarkable features. The highest vantage point from this masterpiece is located 344 steps above the entrance, in the 100m- high cathedral spire.

Einstein House

Albert Einstein spent part of his life in Bern. In 1902 he came to the Swiss capital and took up a post at the federal patent office. In 1903, he and his wife Mileva moved into an apartment on the third floor of Kramgasse 49, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today, the apartment is open to tourists. It is furnished in the style of Einsteinʹs time and documents the life of the physicist dur- ing his years in Bern. This was the most creative period of scientific discovery in Einsteinʹs career and included the annus mirabilis (1905) during which he published some of his most revolutionary papers.

The BearPark

The Bear Park is home to Finn, Björk, and their daughter Ursina. The animals have been living in the new park along the bank of Aare since 2009. The new BearPark provides a landscape where the brown bears can climb, fish and play, but also just retreat and relax. The grounds cover nearly 6,000 square meters and extend from the former BearPits down to the riverʹs edge. With wooded areas, bushes, grottos, and a spacious pool running parallel with the Aare, the bears are able to live a real bearʹs life. Finn, the father bear, is especially fond of the pool.

11

House of Parliament

After Bern was declared the Swiss capital in 1848, a new building had to be constructed for its parliament. The construction of to- dayʹs west wing began in 1852. The east wing was added in 1884 – a mirror image of the west wing. The imposing centre section with its dome and golden ribbing was completed in 1902. The dome is clad in copper and had a reddish hue in the time right after its completion. Over time, the turquoise patina developed that is typi- cal of aged copper. The decorations in and on the Parliament Build- ing were the work of a total of 38 artists from all over the country. The Parliament Square was inaugurated on July 31 and August 1, 2004 (Swiss National Day). The square now serves as a gathering place for young and old, and rather than providing parking spaces for cars as it used to, it now hosts the traditional weekly market.

The Rose Garden

The Rose Garden is one of Bernʹs most beautiful parks, offering an unrivalled view of the Old Town and Aare Loop. When the weath- er is clear, the view extends far beyond the city. Not only is the Rose Garden a welcoming recreational area, it is also a popular spot for taking memorable photos. As the name suggests, the park is most notable for its wealth of blossoms. It is home to 223 rose, 200 iris and 28 rhododendron varieties, as well as an enchanting water lily pond. A pavilion and a reading garden make the Rose Garden the ideal place to relax, while the restaurant tempts visitors to linger a while longer. The park also caters to children, with a big playground where the little ones can run wild.

The Conference Venue The University of Bern

Since its foundation in 1834, the University of Bern – replacing a Theological Seminary from the 16th century – conducts teaching and research for the benefit of society. Switzerlandʹs Capital Uni- versity is an authority in medicine and dentistry, a leader in cli- mate research and a pioneer in space research and fundamental physics. It has set milestones in biomedical engineering and has revolutionised forensic medicine with virtopsy. For its 17ʹ500 stu- dents, the third-biggest university in Switzerland offers a broad range of subjects and programmes in eight faculties and some 150 specialized institutes (www.unibe.ch).

The EASR 2018 conference takes place at three different sites of the University of Bern: vonRoll, Unitobler, and UniS:

How to Get There

The conference sites are located in the Länggasse quarter, near the city centre. They are within walking distance of each other and to the main railway station. All sites are within a two to seven-minute bus ride from the main railway station. The best option to reach UniS and Unitobler is Bernmobile Bus 12 (heading for “Läng- gasse”). It frequently runs from the railway station (“Schan- zenstrasse” stop or “Bahnhof” stop) to the Länggasse quarter and stops near the conference sites. The vonRoll lecture hall can be reached by Bernmobile Bus 12 (“Länggasse” stop) and a five- minute walk through Fabrikstrasse. The “Güterbahnhof” stop is even closer and can be reached by PostBus 101, departing from the PostBus station in the railway station (“Hauptbahnhof”) or from “Schanzenstrasse” stop, and heading for “Schlossmatt”.

Getting to the conference sites from the train station.

VonRoll

For over 130 years, vonRoll was an industrial site housing a bridge building workshop, an engineering work and eventually the iron- works of the international Von Roll company. In the 1990s, the production facility on Fabrikstrasse had to close its doors after the company was restructured. The Canton of Bern acquired part of the area to build facilities for the university and the Pädagogische Hochschule Bern. VonRoll has been part of the university since the early 2010s. Room 001 at the vonRoll lecture hall is the conference location for:

  • Welcome Reception
  • Opening Event
  • Closing Event

    Daycare for participantsʹ children will take place in the parents / child room B 002 in the vonRoll main building at Fabrikstrasse 8.

    Unitobler

    When the city of Bern was awarded the Wakker Prize in 1997 for the conversion of industrial buildings, the Unitobler was a show- case example. The former factory of the Chocolat Tobler AG is now the Centre of Humanities. Unitobler is the conference location for:

  • Sessions / presentations
  • Workgroup meetings
  • IAHR / EASR / SGR meetings
  • Lunches, coffee breaks

The ambiguity of the religious self in pre- and postnational social worlds. Examples from 17th-century Morocco and 20th-century Germany

Reinhard Schulze, University of Bern, Switzerland

In the framework of the European nation-state, the religious self became standardized as confessional personal identity. The ho- mogenization of religious and nation-state fundamentally contrasts with narratives of contingent varieties of religious self-expressions which were common both in early modern times, as for example in Morocco and in early post-modern self-interpretations as for ex- ample in Berlin after World War I. Pre- and postnational construc- tions of religiousness, however, are seldom studied, in contrast to the definiteness and unambiguity of modern national religious identities. Instead, the modern paradigm of religiousness is often viewed as a transhistorical model, valid even for the analysis of the pre-modern constitution of “religiosity”. Reconstructing evidences for an ambiguity of the religious self in pre- and postnational biog- raphies enables us to define the confines of the specifically modern model of religion and to bring out alternative social models of reli- gious self-interpretations.

Reinhard Schulze is professor for Islamic Studies and Oriental Phi- lology at the University of Bern. His main research interests focus on Muslim social and cultural history from early modernity to con- temporary times, with a special interest in political dimensions of

31

modern Islam (Islam and Enlightenment, or the genealogy of polit- ical Islam). His studies emphasise the relevance of the Muslim world for the systematic study of religion. Latest publications in- clude Der Koran und die Genealogie des Islam (Schwabe, 2015).

Multiple Religious Identities: Realities and Reflections

Grace Davie, University of Exeter, United Kingdom Introduction: Andrea Rota, Bern

This presentation will draw from the work that I have undertaken as part of the International Panel on Social Progress (see https://www.ipsp.org/). This is a wide-ranging project covering economic, political and cultural issues. A dominant theme within the chapter on religion – “Religions and social progress: Critical assessments and creative partnerships” – concerns the documenta- tion and management of religious diversity in different parts of the world. In this presentation I move from the global outlines to the European case, concentrating in particular on two neighbouring societies: France and Britain. I interrogate the following question: France is, without doubt, a more democratic society than Britain, with regard to both constitutional and institutional questions. Brit- ain, however, is – or until very recently has been – a more tolerant society than France in, for example, its acceptance of minorities over the long term and the habits of mind that come with this. What, then, is the relationship between democracy and tolerance in

32

the European case? And what might be the consequences of cur- rent political choices – among them the decision that has become known as BREXIT?

Grace Davie is professor of sociology at Exeter University (ret.). She has done extensive research on religion in contemporary Euro- pean societies. She continues to work closely with the Uppsala Re- ligion and Society Research Centre, more specifically with the Lin- naeus Centre of Excellence: The Impact of Religion – Challenges for Society, Law and Democracy. Latest publications include Religion in Britain: A Persistent Paradox (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015).

Diversification of Religious Identities in Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe: the case of the Baltic States

Milda Ališauskienė, Vytautas Magnus University Lithuania Introduction: Martin Baumann, Lucerne

Thinking about the role of religion in the everyday lives of Central and Eastern European societies becomes a very complicated issue as these societies are undergoing the transition from totalitarian to liberal democracy regimes. Religious revival expressed through high rates of beliefs and participation in the nineties has gone in most of the cases. More recent empirical data provides ground for discussing further changes in these societies where different pat- terns of religious lives have emerged from more secular (Estonia, Czech Republic and Eastern Germany) to more religious and con- servative (Poland, Slovakia, Hungary). Additionally, one might see

33

challenges in finding explanation for religious transformations in the Orthodox countries or the countries where Orthodox communi- ties form an influential minority. In this paper, I will discuss the changes that societies of Eastern and Central Europe have under- gone during the last three decades focusing on the individual level of religiosity, indicating and defining the diversity of religious identities in these societies and searching for the explanation of this process from the sociological point of view. The paper will be based upon the analysis of empirical data of European Value Sur- vey and a 2017 Community Survey in Lithuania.

Milda Ališauskienė is Associate Professor and Head of the De- partment of Sociology at Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania. Her research interests include sociology of religion, New Age, New Religious Movements and secularisation.

Urbanity and multiple religious identities in antiquity

Jörg Rüpke, University of Erfurt, Germany Introduction: Karénina Kollmar-Paulenz, Bern

Religious identities imagined as collective and publicly affirmed were a late-comer in the ancient Mediterranean world, slowly de- veloping in Hellenistic and Roman empires. Before, people en-

34

gaged in different cults and easily shifted piety from one local god to the other when they were moving. Only in rare situations self- definitions were invoked with regard to religious beliefs or belong- ings. Family or political belonging could be expressed by referring to religious symbols, but only very specific religious roles pro- duced anything like religious identities. The talk will explore changes in the use of specifically religious identities and the driv- ing forces behind such changes. Building on concepts of ‘lived an- cient religion’ and religious spatiality, particular attention will be paid to processes related to urbanisation and urban growth as the most important dynamic factors. Such factors include urban aspira- tions that triggered migration, identification and ethnogenesis, but also the density and diversity of living quarters, and the political interests of administrating and dominating urban space. A closer inspection of these combined factors will highlight their role in the development of intermittent and multiple religious identities as forms of urbanity that combined rather than mutually excluded choice and control.

Jörg Rüpke, since 1999 chair of comparative religion at the Univer- sity of Erfurt, is the co-director of the Max-Weber-Kolleg für kul- tur- und sozialwissenschaftliche Studien, and co-director of the Re- search Group “Religious Individualization in Historical Perspec- tive”. His research interests focus predominantly on religion in the Roman world. Latest publications include On Roman Religion: Lived Religion and the Individual in Ancient Rome (Cornell University Press, 2016), and Religious Deviance in the Roman World: Superstition or In- dividuality (Cambridge University Press, 2016).

Religious demarcation, border violation and deviance discourses in medieval religious groups

Dorothea Weltecke, University of Frankfurt, Germany Introduction: Anja Kirsch, Basel

Empirical research on the “ways that never parted” in Late Antiq- uity has shown that theology as well as orthodoxy and religious demarcation in Jewish, Christians and Muslim traditions devel- oped only gradually. It has also been shown that speculative theol- ogy and philosophy matured through both demarcation as well as exchange, sharing theoretical concepts. Many cases of dual reli- gious affiliations have also been highlighted. Moreover, it has been demonstrated in trans-religious studies in the European West as well as in the Islamicate world that a wide range of shared spaces beyond religious borders in material culture, philosophy, theology and literature, never ceased to exist during this first period of Christian and Muslim rule. Within this frame of recent empirical research, this presentation will turn back to the limits of free choice on the religious marketplace in the Middle Ages. The paper will examine cases of sanctioned border violations or unclear affilia- tions, especially cases of (suspected) apostasy under Christian and Muslim rule. Border violation is part of the deviance discourse as well as a target of legal and social intervention, yet the borders are voluble, and they vary in rigor. While set religious propositions seem to rule the deviance discourse they apparently do not define the position of border guards and the limits of fluidity.

Dorothea Weltecke is professor for History at the University of Frankfurt (till 2017 professor for the History of Religions, Universi-

36

ty of Constance). Her research interests include inter- and intra- religious dynamics in the history of religions in Europe and the Middle East, focusing on the medieval history of religious minori- ties, religious deviance, atheism and non-belief, and religious vio- lence. Latest publications include “Der Narr spricht: Es ist kein Gott”: Studien zu Atheismus, Unglauben und Glaubenszweifel vom 12. Jahrhundert bis zur Neuzeit (Frankfurt 2010), “Beyond exclusivism in the Middle Ages: On the Three Rings, the three Impostors and the discourse of multiplicity”, The Oxford Handbook of Abrahamic Reli- gions (Guy Stroumsa, ed., Oxford 2015).

A Comparative History of saṃsāra in Early India: In and Out the Vortex of Transmigration

Eugen Ciurtin, Romanian Academy, Romania Introduction: Maya Burger, Lausanne

The lecture presents a new outline of the doctrine of saṃsāra in In- dic religions. ‘Karman and rebirth’ have played a seminal role in the generalist and comparative history of religions in India and be- yond, regardless of the standard difficulty of their origin consid- ered by many to be “the single greatest problem of Indological studies” (Salomon 1982, 410). In contrast, saṃsāra as the inscrutable realm of transmigration – operating precisely for multiple religious identities – is decidedly less studied and understood. The word it- self made its most likely first appearance in the Kaṭha-upaniṣad III.7 and the Śvetāśvatara-upaniṣad VI.15–16. Vedic-Brahmanical, Jain, Buddhist, Ājīvika and Hindu doctrinal and narrative assort-

37

ments of transmigration will be corroborated in order to define the shared landscape of saṃsāra. Variously seen as a most vast ‘sea’, ‘ocean,’ ‘whirlpool,’ ‘prison,’ wilderness’ and the like, saṃsāra will subsequently provide the best analytic tool in discerning and dif- ferentiating the religious dynamics in India, through selected com- parisons: transmigration and memory (the string of predecessors of a jina or a buddha); interdictions (from dietary to conjugal to funer- al); salvific pessimism (with all heavens and hells becoming endur- ingly purgatorial), and cosmo-ecology (the unbreakable solidarity and circum-relevance of life). While discussing a range of recent studies, the lecture will lay emphasis on lesser aspects of the “pro- gram of transmigration” (Roșu 1978, 147), as the saṃsāric ‘winds’ (in embryology), the evocative ‘scents’ (in psychology), and the prevalence of flaming/ burning/ blazing in the pan-Indian saṃsāra imaginaire. The consequences are manifold – Indians being conse- quential, and the category of ‘religion’ even more. It was e.g. the resolute wrestling of Sanskrit medical thinking with the all- pervasive notion of saṃsāra as true horizon of the psychosomatic entity which offered to Indians the full discovery of the uncon- scious (some two millennia before von Hartmann and Freud). As an exercise in macrohistory of religions, the lecture will conclude by advocating a basic distinction between religions either ground- ed in or excluding a form of transmigration – more effective than some older (and always Western) grand dichotomies (monotheism vs. polytheism, etc.) still prevalent in the academic study of reli- gions.

Eugen Ciurtin is senior researcher at the Institute for the History of Religions, Romanian Academy, Bucharest. His main fields of re- search comprise Indian Studies, Buddhist Studies, and History of Religions, including their historiography. He serves as Secretary of
