What has been termed the global religious revival has been broadly perceived as proving that religious identity is more powerful than national identity. A broad comparative analysis suggests that this perception of the two forms of group identity as opposed and weighted in favor of religion is overdrawn: it suggests that the religious revival has operated primarily within the confines of national groups and that even so-called universal religions, such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam, in practice appear to reinforce the specific identities under their umbrella.
