Abstract

In this research we focus on the analysis and interpretation of the conditions that supported the provenience and emergence of the secularization thesis. To this end, we apply a genealogical methodology that allows us to examine its historical vicissitudes, as well as its contingencies, discontinuities, and contradictions in sociological and pre-sociological discourse. We propose a diachronic and systematic review of the range of meanings of secularization. We begin with its Greco- Roman senses and then deepen what we call the pivotal moment for establishing a systematic study of religious phenomena in modern societies - the late 19th-century and early 20th-century. The study of its provenience and emergence compels us to question secularization as the natural order of modern societies.
