Pride of Place (PoP) is the positive emotion that people can have for the place they identify or associate themselves with. It is linked to one’s own place identity and attachment to one’s own place, whether at a local or broader geographical scale. Positive pride of where one comes from can elicit a series of behaviours that are of prosocial and caring character, a pride that is too extreme, however, can result in nationalism and antisocial behaviours (at least towards what is outside one’s own place). In this book chapter, the literature around the emotion of pride is reviewed, being it historically and religiously regarded as a vice, specifically in relationship to places within a religious context. Pride of Place and religion are discussed in relation to the affective, cognitive and conative aspect of people–place bonds.

All four authors are involved—either for Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy (MB, SA, SC), or the Anatta Foundation, The Netherlands (TA)—in a European Commission funded Erasmus Plus project on Pride of Place where the concept is studied and a curriculum for secondary education in rural areas is developed to foster positive people–place bonds and enhance twenty-first century skills. The project results will be published on The EC Erasmus + grant ‘Pride of place’ runs from 01-09-2018 until 31-10-2020 (reference number: 2018-1-NL01-KA201-039020).
