The author argues that religious history is underestimated in its
importance for World- and Global history. The history of religions
is quite often an established sub-discipline within convincing
research traditions. In order to reconstruct the past adequately,
historians need academically controlled data about the beliefs of
the people they are dealing with. This book offers ten examples
from a wide range of religious beliefs which show that developments
in religion have far reaching consequences for general history - in
the change from Empire to the system of European nations, in
establishing social disciplines as part of capitalist societies, in
attempts of semi-peripheral states struggling for a place in the
European World-System, in defence of Muslim societies on the
peripheries and in postcolonial Africa.
