Edition 3, June 2016

Fundamentalism is a crucial and inevitable key topic in present society. Although there have been increasing debates about religious fundamentalism during the last years, an interdisciplinary and systematical investigation of the theoretical backgrounds of fundamentalism,  its consequences for global politics and its essential meaning for a networked society is still missing. The third issue of the Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society examines current forms of religious fundamentalism from an interdisciplinary and inter-confessional perspective. The articles investigate preconditions and theoretical backgrounds of religious fundamentalism as well as concrete implementations of fundamentalism in different religions. Due to current events, main topics are Islamic fundamentalism, Jihadism and the relationship between fundamentalism and the internet, as well as the challenge of fundamentalism for religious education. Moreover, a great part of contributions focuses on critical resources against religious fundamentalism, not least within religious traditions.
