Abstract

NGCOBO, Eric T.  and  BEYERS, Jaco. Is it still possible to study religion religiously today?: Mircea Eliade's religious apologetic account. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.1, pp.146-153. ISSN 2074-7705.

This article reflects on the question whether it is still possible to study religion religiously today or not? This is due to the variety of disciplines' interest in religion and its phenomena. Such interest influenced the study to adopt a new approach that is different from that of religious studies. Both religion and its phenomena, especially myths according to the reductionists, should be treated lesser than they are professed to be. Mircea Eliade on the other hand argues differently, as he stresses on the point that religious phenomena can only be studied under religious spheres alone.
