Religion

Despite the fact that the great world religions such as Christianity and Islam are experiencing identity crises in many places, an end to religiosity is not in sight. The vast majority of the world's population today belongs to one religious denomination - and the trend is rising. Even in less religious societies, the opinions of church authorities on socio-political issues are still being heard. When popes travel, believers and onlookers gather in large numbers. The Dalai Lama is one of the most popular personalities of all. Simple priests or nuns, on the other hand, achieved the highest honours through their selfless actions or their fight against injustice: Mother Teresa, Abbé Pierre - you can find their pictures at Süddeutsche Zeitung Photo.
