Religious Transformation in Vietnam in the Context of International Integration

CHU VAN TUAN

Tóm tắt


    Impacts caused by globalization and international integration have led to changes in Vietnam religious life in various dimensions. The paper presents some religious changes in three fundamental aspects, namely: faith, practice and community. In terms of faith, religious transformation is shown most obviously via religious conversion (or change in faith); In terms of practice, it is shown via some factors such as characteristics, scale, degree etc.; In terms of community, there is emergence of new religious communities, especially in the North-west, the Central Highlands, and the South-west. The religious transformation in Vietnam in the context of international integration has raised some issues, such as preservation and conservation of Vietnamese traditional cultural values generally and religious values particularly.
