Abstract

This study discusses the phenomenon of religious conservatism and strengthening of religious moderation in the midst of the global pandemic, Covid-19. There are three problems that are the focus of research in this study, namely; religious moderation, religious conservatism, and finally Covid-19. Using this type of qualitative research and analysis based on social theory, this study finds two important findings; First, one of the problems that has often hampered the agenda for dealing with Covid-19 in many countries in the world, including in Indonesia, comes from conservatism in the religious sector. Contrasting the handling of Covid-19 with religious texts so as to make the response to Covid-19 not optimal and ineffective; Second, the idea of ​​religious moderatism in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic requires three (3) things; rational, inclusive, and contextual. Moderate in the rational sense means responding to Covid-19 with common sense and a logical attitude. It does not clash religion and science (medical), but positions them both in a dialogical and integrative manner. Meanwhile, being moderate in the sense of inclusion requires willingness and self-awareness to always take an active role. Comply with all forms of Covid-19 mitigation that have been mutually agreed upon based on consensus government policies. Meanwhile, moderatism in a contextual sense means that understanding Covid-19 requires comprehensive observation and attitude. Considering its sociological aspects such as cultural dimensions, social systems and patterns of community interaction.
