Abstract

Differing understandings of time underlie conceptions of history in Eastern and Western religious traditions. Crucial to these is the role of narrative and the emergence of 'historicity' as a factor in the study of religions. Correlating these could enable the development of an enhanced understanding of conflict in its historical contexts.
