    Abstract:
    © 2013, © The Author(s) 2013 Reprints and permissions: sagepub.co.uk/journalsPermissions.nav. A brief overview of Marx's account of religion is followed by a consideration of a conception of liberation—a notion shared by marxists and adherents of religious traditions alike—that is substantive enough to overcome the marginalization and exploitation of countless numbers of human beings. The final section deals with the possibility of a rapprochement between the marxist and the adherent of a religious tradition.
