Description:

The study of the non-religious phenomenon dates back less than half a century. The 60s – 70s of the last century were the beginning of a new discipline in the area of ​​the history of world religions: the study of new religious movements. Whether they were of Christian or non-Christian inspiration, these new movements have sounded the alarm about certain significant mutations in the religious mind. There is no traditional church or religion that has not been affected, more or less, by the emergence of new religious movements. The religious sentiment, like the identity of the people, began to transform, evolve, move from one society to another, from one generation to another. Today, the neo-religious phenomenon is affecting tens and hundreds of millions of people around the world. In Romania, neo-religions come from the West, but many of them bear the imprint and influence of many Eastern religions. Swinging between syncretism and eclecticism, many of the new religions are a confusing amalgam of ideas, doctrines, and practices. In this sense, a very conclusive example is represented by South America, India and Africa, where the population, for the most part of it Christian, still retains the magical-religious influences of the pre-Christian religiosity.
