Emnets innhold:
What is Religion? What is Political Islam? How does Religion influence politics? Should religion influence politics? In the late 60s, the questions would probably been answered with a claim that religion was becoming irrelevant,  but the Iranian Revolution, the role of the Catholic church in the Polish solidarity movement, the rise of Taliban, and September 11th as well as the role of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Arab spring, all put a question mark behind this assumption.
