Summary In this volume of the RENNER series on new religion, the issue of religion and globalisation is treated with a single religion as the recurring example. The Baha'i religion has been carefully chosen for this context. Few other religions express so clearly in their doctrines the view that the world should be unified, politically and religiously.
