Russia is widely considered to have experienced a religious revival in the two decades since the end of communism. Edward Holland, Title VIII-Supported Research Scholar, considers the case study of Buddhism in the republic of Kalmykia, and questions this straightforward interpretation of renaissance. While survey data suggests an uptick in religious practice and identification, interviews with religious elites and focus group conversations point to a more nuanced interpretation of Buddhism’s role in the republic today.
