Religionswissenschaftliches Seminar

New publication: Special issue on the role of historians in the study of religion\s edited by Mattias Brand.

In this special issue, eight historians address the main challenges to the historical study of religion\s. The various contributions present answers to three challenges: (1) the profound questioning of the most central concepts in the historical study of religion\s; (2) increasing fragmentation of the discipline, with many excellent – but hyper-specialised – contributions; and (3) limited success in communicating specific academic insights to a larger audience of scholars and the general public. The answers show how thorough historical work has contributed to – and continues to engage with –  the overarching academic and social conversations about religion in our world(s).
