This essay proposes a theoretical reading of contemporary religious phenomena through the two concepts of "ideologization” and “psychologization.” It situates contemporary religious trends within the context of a new “global” culture and analyzes some of the ways in which they break away from traditional concepts of religion while blurring the lines between the religious and the secular.
