This chapter outlines the broader interdisciplinary field of emerging academic work on childhood, youth, and religious identity, identifying and investigating the geography that can be found within it. It begins by outlining the foundations of the field, before introducing the concept of religious identity and some of its key features. The chapter then goes on to explore a range of cross-cutting themes including socialization, agency, expression, and belonging. The role of geographical concepts and perspectives are considered in each of these four sections. The chapter ends with reflections on future directions and challenges for the study of religion and religious identity in geographies of children and young people.
