After presenting a brief summary of the main research results of this book, the epilogue broadens the scope of the discussion in several directions. First, it introduces the situation of a Yiguandao place of worship located in the suburbs of Paris. The objective of this side fieldwork is to test to which extents factors explaining Yiguandao’s expansionary dynamics in the Taiwan–Hong Kong–Macao–China area can (or cannot) constitute relevant explanatory factors in a completely different context. Second, the epilogue also emphasizes the contribution of the book to different disciplinary fields.
