This article has three sections. The first sets out the theme: that is the task or tasks of the sociology of religion. The variations on this theme follow, for it becomes immediately clear that not all sociologists of religion either identify or set about their assignments in the same way. The second section tackles similar issues but from a different perspective: it is concerned with the evolution of the sub-discipline in different parts of the world and in different language communities. We share common sources in the sociological classics; in later generations, however, distinctive discourses have emerged in different global regions. The final section offers a worked example of one particular debate: that which relates to new religious movements in different parts of the world.
