Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to illustrate whether certain phenomena are connected to religion or to culture. This investigation is backed up by literature and four interviews with people with different religious backgrounds, thus coming to a conclusion about how the differences between religion and culture are viewed based on the participants background. The participants are Christian, Muslim, Jehovah's witnesses and an atheist. Among the answers from these people, we have discovered that almost all of the participants mentioned how ethnic Swedes (in the Swedish society) are most often the ones who do not understand the difference between religion and culture. The result we received from the interviews was that, unfortunately, ignorance is present among many people who do not understand the difference between religion and culture. The result from the literature gave us a clear answer on how the misunderstanding between religion and culture happened. According to Isak Svensson the misunderstanding many times is about ignorance and confusion.
