 Antagonistic Tolerance examines styles of coexistence and clash among participants of alternative non secular groups, utilizing multidisciplinary learn to investigate teams who've peacefully intermingled for generations, and who can have constructed points of syncretism of their non secular practices, and but have became violently on one another. Such groups outline themselves as separate peoples, with various and infrequently competing pursuits, but their interplay is generally peaceful supplied the dominance of 1 team is obvious. the main indicator of dominance is keep watch over over significant non secular websites, that could be tacitly shared for lengthy sessions, yet later contested or even switched over as dominance adjustments. through concentrating on those shared and contested websites, this quantity permits a much broader knowing of family members among those groups.

Both the population and the physical manifestations of the religion are components of a religioscape: a physical artifact associated with a religion that is no longer practiced may be evidence of a previous religioscape but does not itself constitute a religioscape. The situations we are interested in are those in which two populations distinguished by differing religions inhabit the same territory; in such cases, two religioscapes intersect.
