Papers presented to the Second International Conference of the Leiden Institute for the Study of Religions (LISOR) held at Leiden, 27-28 April 2000  
Studies in Theology and Religion,11

Polemics, as “the art or practice of disputation or controversy”, is a living issue in matters of religion, and is a major object of research for scholars in religious studies and theology. The second international conference of the Leiden Institute for the Study of Religions (LISOR), held at Leiden in April 2000, was devoted to the subject of Religious Polemics in Context, aiming at a further exploration of the notion of religious polemics, together with the unfolding of a wide variety of case-studies from various religious traditions. The volume contains most of the papers read at the conference, and offers contributions on general issues (e.g., by M. Dascal), as well as on particular topics in the fields of history of religion (e.g., Islam), ancient Israel and early Christianity, the history of Christianity, and the social sciences of religion. An annotated bibliography is added to this collection, which may stimulate a further study of the topic.
The book series Studies in Empirical Theology publishes monographs and edited volumes in the crossover field between theological and social-scientific research. Books published in the series involve both qualitative and quantitative interpretations of empirical approaches within the field of theology. All publications aim to contribute to empirically focused theological reflection on religion in all its aspects within secularized and multicultural societies in view of the development of religion in these societies now and in the future.

The series published one volume over the last 5 years.
