Plačiau apie diskusiją:
The aim of this discussion is to explore how various religious movements around the world are coping with challenges posed by the pandemic, while practically contributing to the fight against the spread of COVID-19.
Often making headlines only when they create problems, or do not respect the health rules, several new religious movements have in fact offered valuable resources, both practical and spiritual, during the pandemic crisis.
The discussion is initiated on the basis of Rosita’s Šorytė’s recent book We Can Lift This World While Quarantined: Scientology and the 2020 Pandemic (Madrid: FORB Press, 2020).
