  • Theorizing Religion and Nationalism: The Need for Critical Reflexivity in
           the Analysis of Overlapping Areas of Research
    • Authors: Liam T. Sutherland
      Abstract: This introduction urges critical scholars of religion to apply the same contextual rigour and critical reflexivity to “nationalism” that they would to “religion” because the former is an area of study which is frequently bound up with religion. The fact of their mutual entanglement means that unreflective or essentialized approaches to the “nationalism” which form an unavoidable part of our studies of “religion” will inevitably have a detrimental impact on our analysis of our object of study. The chapters in this special edition of Implicit Religion address theoretical issues which emerge from particular case studies related to religion and nationalism. This introduction provides a more general discussion of nationalism from a religious studies perspective (though one thoroughly indebted to nationalism studies scholars: I will make a case for the broader approach to nationalism prevalent in that field). As such, I will address one thing which is associated with religion and nationalism: conflict. I demonstrate that many of the same assumptions which can be critiqued in the study of religious conflict are also identifiable with claims about nationalism. I show that the critical rigour needed to approach “nationalism” often simply involves the application of the same critical tools and observations developed in the study of religion: avoiding essentialism, emphasizing the importance of context, avoiding reifying the objects of study etc.

  • Modern Greek Ethno-Religious Nationalism: An Ideological and
           Spatio-Temporal Relocation of Selfhood
    • Authors: Damon Zacharias Lycourinos
      Abstract: Since Greece’s independence in 1829, modern Greek identity has been perceived in both scholarly and popular accounts as the ideological interrelationship of Hellenic nationhood and Greek Orthodoxy. Through state-funded representations, this interrelationship has produced the ethno- religious identity of Ελληνοχριστιανισμός (“Helleno-Christianism”) shaping conceptions of the “Self” and the “Other” in terms of emic claims to a “lived” historical memory of topographical boundaries, cultural uniqueness, and national heritage. Rather than speak of Greek nationhood as an “imagined community” of the modernist constructions of the nation-state, in this study I argue that Greek nationhood is the product of a pre-modern process of geographical and ideological relocation of ethno-religious self-perception in response to the Sack of Constantinople by the Latin Crusaders in 1204, which reduced the Byzantine Empire to its “Hellenic” geographical space making it a Greek state of ethnic, cultural, and linguistic homogeneity. The theoretical contribution of this study is to examine how the nationalistic enterprise of modern Greek ethno-religious identity formation constitutes synchronic relations and diachronic extensions that involve the strategic sacralization of geographic space as a pragmatic expression of pre-modern nationalistic discourse promoting a notion of the “Self” as a resistance to the “Other.”

  • Sacredness as a Resource, Sacralization as a Strategy: Field Marshal
           Mannerheim and Finnish Fields of Media and Cultural Production
    • Authors: Jere Kyyrö
      Abstract: This article re-thinks the concept of sacred in terms of sacralization, or as strategic action in a certain field of possibilities, and as sacredness, or as a resource to be appropriated in strategic action, aiming to accumulate or exchange specific capitals. Secondly, it looks into national symbols and their uses in the field of cultural production, especially the media in terms of sacralization and sacredness. Its Empirical data consists of media discussions around artworks re-interpreting Field Marshal Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim (1867– 1951) as a Finnish national symbol in the 2000s and 2010s. The dynamics of the field of cultural production and media affect the way Mannerheim is re-interpreted, and how these re-interpretations are received. Mannerheim as a sacred symbol can be used in many ways to accumulate specific capitals in the field of cultural production.

  • One Nation, Many Faiths: Civic-Cultural Nationalism and Religious
           Pluralism in the Scottish Interfaith Literature
    • Authors: Liam T. Sutherland
      Abstract: This article examines the representation of Scottish national identity and religious pluralism within the literature of Interfaith Scotland: a nationwide interfaith body formed after the establishment of the devolved Scottish Parliament in 1999. I will show that a form of civic and cultural nationalism is evident within that literature. I will also demonstrate that its representations of religious pluralism are structured by the world religions paradigm. It is argued that these different categories are represented as complementary and non-competitive. That representations of religions as universalistic, global and transcendent entail that they do not compete with the limited, bounded and ultimately sovereign national identity of Scotland.

  • Reflections on the Study of National Myths
    • Authors: Ira Chernus
      Abstract: The political life of every nation is shaped by myths, that is, by stories that express something fundamental about the worldview and values of the people that tell them. This essay focuses on the study of myth in the political life of the United States. It explores a series of theoretical issues as a prolegomenon to the substantive study of American national myths. It offers reasons for studying national myths, distinguishes the study of myth from other categories of academic study, explores the differences between myths and beliefs, examines in depth how myth shapes the non-rational side of political attitudes and action, and gives special attention to methodological issues in the study of the history of political myths as well as ways in which study of the past helps our understanding of political myths in the present and thus allows us to have more influence on reshaping political mythology and political policy in the future.
