Religion and Humor

The topic of humor and religion poses a puzzle. As witnessed by notions such as Homo ridens and Homo religiosus, both humor and religion have been regarded as defining the human condition. Somewhat differently, both have often been held to be universals found throughout history and across cultures. Even if one questions their use to define the human condition or their status as universals, one must admit that both humor and religion do seem to be found almost everywhere.
