Abstract

This paper outlines the discipline “Religionsaisthetik” (Aisthetics of Religion) as a program for the comparative study of religion. Based on the complex discursive reasonings of ̒religious studies’, it argues for a heuristic approach to religion. The scientific concept of describing religion should be separated from any specific religious and/or social discourse. The aim is to pursue a purely scientific approach. “Religionsaisthetik” begins its research with the sensory perception of religion. It analyzes communication and multimedia “Sign Processes”. Order, Orientation and Meaning will be used for the description of religion as a “Perceptual Space”. Further analytical concepts include Symbol, Myth, Narration and Ritual.
