Whether one thinks that ôreligionö continues to fade or has made a comeback in the contemporary world, there is a common notion that ôreligionö went away some-where, at least in the West. Yet William Cavanaugh argues that religious fervor never left-it has only migrated toward a new object of worship. In Migrations of the Holy he examines the disconcerting modern transfer of sacred devotion from the church to the nation-state.
