After having raised the question for God last year, we come up with a new proposal on the reflection of God(s) through the concrete examples of historical religions. In this panel we will deal with a broad diachronic reflection but through concrete historical cases: God(s) and religion(s) are two concepts that can be understood through historical ractice. From the first historical manifestations of religions to the postmodern spiritual approaches, God(s) and religion(s) have established an interaction of mutual definition: how we understand the religious determines the understanding of the divine, and vice versa. We open this panel to all those communications that deal with this binomial [image-concept of God(s) / and the structure of “the religious”] in any historical stage with the aim of reaching methodological conclusions that overcome the interdisciplinary approaches to introduce ourselves in the core of Comparative History of Religions.
