Abstract: Secularization has meant not mainly the decline of religion (although in many countries this has been a consequence )- but, rather, the pluralization of religious, or spiritual positions, and the creation of a culture of ecumenical exchange, which is very different from what obtained half a century ago. Professor Taylor examines this development and contrasts it to another religious development, viz., the use of religion as a marker of political identity and mobilization, frequently accompanied by conflict and violence. This bifurcation of religious belonging into two utterly opposed tendencies is a crucial feature of our times.
