Over the past four decades, scholarship on contemporary religion has been expanding at an explosive rate. The aim of the Brill Handbooks on Contemporary Religion series is to capture this development by publishing cutting-edge scholarship that simultaneously charts new directions for future research. The Handbooks are international in scope, drawing on the expertise of scholars across the globe, bringing in contributors from a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. Individual volumes will be devoted to areas of study that have generated substantial bodies of research such as Western Esotericism, to common themes in the study of contemporary religions like Authority of Science or New Media, and to specific religious movements.
For more information on the submission of proposals or editing of volumes within the series, see the BHCR Proposal Guide.

The series has published an average of two volumes per year over the last 5 years.
