The Atlas of Czech Religions represents the first extensive and comprehensive geographical analysis of the religious landscape of Czechia and its transformation since the fall of communism in 1989. The atlas is divided into three parts: the first section tackles regional differentiation between select religious movements and groups within the last two decades; the second focuses on sacred objects in their environment and their deployment in ten model regions across Czechia; the final analyzes the relational context of specific spatial, socioeconomic and demographic factors connected to religiosity in contemporary Czech society. Every chapter includes a cartographic section which explains phenomena in its regional context. The atlas, thus, illustrates the spatial aspects of religiosity in Czech society, and its diversity, development, historical continuity and global influences.
