DescriptionWith reference to classic theories of myth and religion, I investigate QAnon – a decentralized right-wing conspiracy movement which emerged in the United States during Donald Trump’s presidency – as a quasi-religious response to Trump’s irruption into American political discourse. I hypothesize that a confluence of factors pertinent to the American cultural landscape generated conditions for a cult – merging the horizons of the religious and political – to coalesce around Trump as a religious hero figure.
