Description "Modernization" (xiandaihua) belongs among the key terms used in China to conceptualize the process of forming the modern Chinese identity. The lecture analyses the role of the Chinese religious traditions within the Chinese "modernization" from the beginning of the 20th century to the present time. The lecture highlights two interconnected aspects of the process: 1) The ways the Chinese state has been shaping religions to make them "modern"; 2) The ways the religious traditions have been able to provide the "modernization" idea with incentives of their own.
