##The basic concept, as resulting from our general interest in the topic of religion and identity, was quite simply bringing together scholars from different fields of research (both regional and systematic) and different theoretical backgrounds and let them develop their own approaches to the subject without restricting them with very specific textual guidelines. Since even our own approaches differ to a considerable extent, this strategy seemed to be the most appropriate for demonstrating the multivocality of studies on religion and identity.##
