    I plan to read some of her works since I read how Cioran adored her. Do you have a recommendation?

    There has to be a dialogue between the religion and society, of course. It doesn't go only one way. And I think religion is maybe the slowest institution to adapt, so they would have to be long time social trends. But yes, if the environment of religion is the society and if religion evolves, then it needs to adapt to the accepted world-view of the people in order to not break into smaller sections.

    That's how I see it. But I would be interested what you meant by it.
