In our days t s mportant to examne how the many mmgrants and the r churches adjust to completely new conditions, for example in the way of dressing and concerning food proh bitions. One field of research which is suited for international comparisons concerns the significance of religion n cultural meetings across borders of different kinds, and those conflicts and forms of co-operation that may arise. Rel g on and pol t cs do not have to be opposed, but may also be l nked to each other.What looks like religious antagonisms may n fact have a political motivation.The main nterest for the folklor st is the role rel g on plays for common people w th n d fferent group ngs and not just w th n the political or relig ous elite.
