Examines how religion is imaged in film and how that religious imagination relates to social constructions of national, ethnic, racial, gender, and sexual identities.

It has therefore become a fundamental concern for scholars of Church History, History and Sociology in Nigerian Universities to devote much time to study such churches. Religion maintains the influence of society -- whereas "society" represents the norms and beliefs held in common by a group of individuals. "A religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices realtive to sacred things, that is to say, things set apart and forbidden -- beliefs and practices which unite into one single moral community called a Church, all those who adhere to them." (1982, p. 129 [excerpt from The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life]) "This system of conceptions is not purely imaginary and hallucinatory, for the moral forces that these things awaken in us are quite real -- as real as the ideas that words recall to us after they have served to form the ideas." (1973, p. 160 [excerpt from "The Dualism of Human Nature and its Social Conditions"]) "Since it is in spiritual ways that social pressure exercises itself, it could not fail to give men the idea that outside themselves there exist one or several powers, both moral and, at the same time, efficacious, upon which they depend." (1973, p. 171 [excerpt from The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life]) "Since religious force is nothing other than the collective and anonymous force of the clan, and since this can be represented in the mind only in the form of the totem, the totemic emblem is like the visible body the god." (1973, p. 184 [excerpt from The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life]) "But from the fact that a 'religious experience,' if we choose it this, does exist and that it has a certain foundation ... it does not follow that the reality which is its foundation conforms objectively to the idea which believers have of it." (1973, p. 190 [excerpt from The Elementary Forms of the Religious Life]) "That which science refuses to grant to religion is not its right to exist, but its right to dogmatize upon the nature of things and the special competence which it claims for itself for knowing man and the world.
