Conversion, committing oneself to a faith or ideology, has played a significant role in the history of religions. History is peppered with examples of how conversion can considerably alter the religious "landscape" and understandings of faith communities. Often, as a consequence of this process, the meaning and experience of conversion is refined and defined within societies and faith communities.This volume is a religio-cultural exploration of conversion which overall raises key issues relating to conversion and life in religiously plural societies. One such key issue concerns the very nature of "conversion" itself. In the context of multi-faith communities, religious conversion is usually understood to be the changing of affiliation from one faith to another. Taken as a whole, however, this collection of studies re-examines the assumption that conversion only takes place between different faith communities and considers whether a conversion experience might also happen between different traditions within a single faith, whether individuals can be described as converting out of faith in effect, "de-converting" and the possibility of individuals converting to a dual identity and belonging.
