In the time just before and after World War II, sociology of religion was mixed up with ecclesial interests, but in the sixties the field emancipated as an independent academic discipline. Since that time, various sociological approaches paid attention to manifest and hidden religious phenomena in society as such. In the last decade, however, the interest for religion has been diminished and consequently also the interest for sociology of religion decreased. Sociologists of religion now pay attention to items as New Forms of Religion, New Age, Civil Religion and Religion in Social Action. Sociology of Religion is more or less moving in the direction of Sociology of Culture.
