The first in a series of Gifford Lectures by Prof Diana Eck. Recorded April and May 2009 at The University of Edinburgh.

In 1893, the World's Parliament of Religions in Chicago convened under the banner of universalism. How do pluralism and globalism today stand in contrast to the spirit of universalism, and signal a new reality? While the phenomenon of globalization clearly relates to economics and politics, to environmental and security concerns, how has it altered our religious consciousness, our religious life? What ethical questions are at the forefront of globalization? How have immigrants created new kinds of diasporas? How has the Internet destabilized borders of all kinds, including religious and national borders?
