    Zubrzycki, Geneviève (2012)
    Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion 51:3: 442-455.

    Riesebrodt distinguised religion & religious tradition, the latter capable of being secularized. The left in Polish politics seeks a revival of Polish Judaism to promote pluralism while the right seeks to strengthen Catholic Polish identity. In Quebec there is an accommodation of non-Catholic sensibilities by the left, which yet retains some Catholic symbols in public places as indicators of tradition & Quebec identity.
