This dissertation investigates development and changes of religious ecology in post-Mao China through a study of the uneven growth of popular religion, Buddhism, and Protestant Christianity in Lanxi County in Southeast China. The central question of this study is: Why has the growth of popular religion and Buddhism been eclipsed by Protestantism in the last three decades to the point that a major reconfiguration of the Chinese religious ecology is taking place? The study also probes into each religion and addresses its internal variations.
