The basic research areas of the political science of religion are:
All aspects of religious teachings and practices that have direct political contents and messages, such as religious understanding of government, power, political authority, state, political organizing, war, peace, etc.;
All aspects of religious behavior and practice that don't have direct political contents and messages but do have direct political consequences, such as building of religious edifices, pilgrimages, etc.;
Attitudes and positions of political subjects in the narrow sense towards religion and religious communities, such as that of political parties and pressure groups towards religion and religious communities;
Everything within apparently completely secular public behavior with no religious motives that causes religious consequences, such as an economic monopoly achieved by a religious group within a multi-confessional society - it cannot but cause political consequences.
These fields of research are in constant development. The newest area of research in political science of religion is on the subject of religion and international relations.
