Launched by Boston College in late 1996, Religion and the Arts has rapidly developed into a major international journal in this important interdisciplinary field. Religion and the Arts promotes the development of discourses for exploring the religious dimensions of the verbal, visual and performing arts. The journal has attracted international acclaim for its approach and its excellent quality and range of interest.

Religion and the Arts publishes:
● interpretations that develop new approaches to the religious and spiritual aspects of works of art
● discussions on the role of religion in cultural studies
● critical overviews of the state of scholarship in particular areas
● reviews, interviews, comment, debate, and surveys of recent developments
