Abstract

The failure to recognize and establish legal environmental rights and norms is perilous for the health of the planet and its populations. Using another source of obligations, such as faith-based approaches for ecological harmony and environmental protection, can work to realign delicate ecosystem balances. This article considers ancient and medieval sources from the teachings of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Daoism, Shintoism, Sikhism, and others to provide new directions for existing environmental challenges.

Keywords: Religion, Ecology, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Daoism, Shintoism
