This chapter focuses on the application of the secularisation paradigm, which attributes the decline of religion in Western Europe to modernisation, in the non-Western world. More specifically, it examines salient changes in the religious cultures of various developing countries in Central and Latin America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East as well as the extent to which those countries have become modern or secular. It also considers the various religious responses of these countries to tentative modernisation.

Keywords:   secularisation, religion, Western Europe, modernisation, religious cultures, developing countries, Central America, Latin America, Africa, Asia
