GOD IN THE “LAND OF THE MERCEDES”THE RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES IN ALBANIA SINCE 1990

Abstract : This paper analyses the place of religion in Albania, a former atheist country, with a Muslim majority, but without an official religion. It focuses on former and new dynamics on the Albanian religious scene since 1990 : the ambiguous place of religion in the Albanian society (both marginal and central), and the local, national and transnational dynamics of the religious developments. Then it studies the specifities of each community : the Islamic community, Bektashism, the orthodox community ; the Catholic and Protestant Churches, and Eleonora's Holy Mission.
