Brief substance Faith and religiosity remain elusive objects of analysis for the social sciences, as individualization and non-hierarchical religions grow. This methodological article demonstrates the possibility of researching in depth these subjects while abandoning traditional categories such as institutions, prescriptions, organizations, and authorities, foregrounding instead a more subjective focus, incorporating a comparative, cross-national dimension. Theoretical and methodological considerations arise from the genesis and select findings of a qualitative interdisciplinary study exploring Muslim women in contemporary Europe. Involving 132 participants in five countries, the project explores intersections between everyday concerns, lived experiences and conceptualizations of faith, beyond the traditional ‘performance’ of religion. Attention is drawn to the fluidity of religious adherence, the effect of national cultural-political imaginaries, and the spiritual and intellectual efforts involved in ‘living religion’, and in making it a resource for individual agency
