The religions described by the term New Religious Movements (NRMs) are "not new in a 'cultural' and 'theological' sense' but in a chronological sense," applying to those religious movements that have arisen since the second World War (The World's Religions).
NRMs are also referred to as alternative or emerging religious movements in the literature. Many scholars prefer such terms to older, less neutral descriptors such as "cults" or "sects."
