Pilger, Popen und Propheten: Eine Religionsgeschichte Osteuropas

Die religiöse Vielfalt Osteuropas übertrifft die des Westens bei weitem. Das Neben- und Miteinander von Schamanen, Muslimen, Christen und Juden prägte schon das Mittelalter. Im 17. Jahrhundert kamen Buddhisten hinzu.

An der Grenze zwischen Ost- und Westkirche entstanden zudem neue Glaubensrichtungen: Die Unierte Kirche hielt an der byzantinischen Liturgie fest, erkannte aber den Papst an.

Christoph Schmidt entfaltet ein eindrucksvolles landscape des religiösen Lebens zwischen Weichsel und Wolga, führt den Leser vor mittelalterliche Ikonen, in die Schtetl der Frühen Neuzeit, in die Jurten der buddhistischen Kalmüken, aber auch zu den Moscheen der Tataren-Metropole Kazan, die seit Jahrhunderten Zentrum des russischen Islam ist.
