Edited By Gerd-Bodo von Carlsburg and Annette Miriam Stross

Sind Visionen Phantasievorstellungen, Einbildungen oder gar Trugbilder vergangener Zeiten? Oder ist Visionen, retro- wie auch prospektiv gesehen, ein Potential zu eigen, das Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaftler.innen in der Gegenwart nutzen können und sollten?

In diesem Band zeigen Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler aus Deutschland, Litauen, Estland, Polen, Schweden und China, dass die aktuellen Debatten in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften zu Themen wie Ökologie, interreligiöser Dialog, Identitätsbildung, Gesundheitserziehung, digitale Partizipation, (Welt-)Frieden, Sakrotourismus, Kulturmanagement durch die Einbeziehung visionärer Perspektiven aus unterschiedlichen Disziplinen neu belebt werden können.

Are visions imaginations of fantasies and illusions or even hallucinations of past times? Or has a vision, in retrospect and in preview, a potential that humanists and social scientists can and should use in the present?

In this volume scientists from Germany, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Sweden and China show that current debates in the humanities and social sciences on topics such as ecology, interreligious dialogue, identity learning, health education, digital participation, (world) peace, sacrotourism, cultural management can be revitalized by including visionary perspectives from different scientific disciplines.

It must be emphasized that the tourism industry, understood in the broadest sense, takes on different forms, among which the pilgrimage movement (pilgrimage tourism) and religious tourism are becoming more and more important. Even if this phenomenon is dealt with in various publications and analyzed by researchers in various scientific contexts, especially in the field of social and humanities disciplines, it by no means exhausts the problems of research, especially when these touch the sphere of the sacrum and profane and therefore one require in-depth reflection.

Sacrotourism is defined here as follows: Sacrotourism, as one of the forms of desecularization in the global world, is a kind of individual or group tourism during which the sphere of the sacred is discovered and experienced in transcultural and transreligious dialogue.

In this defnition, I interpret...
