Abstract [en]

In this paper, I will discuss some interlinked processes of contemporary religious change which relate to globalization. To be especially focused in this paper is encounters between older religious traditions and new religions. In a globalized world, encounters are closer and more frequent, and new religions are also more numerous. The paper will discuss how processes of globalization affect these encounters and outcomes of encounters. The material derives from a local mapping project of religion and world view that I conduct in Sweden since the year 2008.[2] Dalarna is a local area in Sweden with about 270,000 inhabitants. All groups with religious social activities, or meetings with some kind of religious connotation in a broad sense (with two or more participants present) have been mapped, with special focus on activities outside traditional Christianity. Special attention has been given to traditional religious activities with “new” elements, and interviews have been conducted with a large number of religious actors from different backgrounds.
