Bron Taylor’s Dark Green Religion after Twelve Years


Bron Taylor’s book Dark Green Religion: Nature Spirituality and the Planetary Future, published in 2010, remains to be an important resource still today. This article discusses the book in the light of Bron Taylor’s work in the field of religion and ecology, interpreting the “global greening of religion” as a strong movement that is driven by discourse communities, consisting of scholars (both from the humanities and the natural sciences), writers, artists, practitioners of all walks of life, politicians, and environmental activists. After briefly discussing examples from recent literature and fiction, the article reviews some influential tendencies within the field of religion and ecology that followed the publication of Dark Green Religion. Besides further research that tests the book’s main hypotheses, these tendencies include a new interest in animism as a key concept both for practitioners and researchers.
