RaT Book Series ist eine interdisziplinäre und internationale Buchreihe mit peer-review Verfahren. Sie wurde 2012 gegründet und wird seit 2022 bei BRILL verlegt. Das Ziel der Buchreihe besteht in der wissenschaftlichen Thematisierung des Einflusses von Religionen auf kulturelle, politische, rechtliche, ästhetische und geistige Dynamiken in globalisierten Gesellschaften. Umgekehrt wird die Bedeutung von aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen auf Religionen und religiöse Ausdrucksformen untersucht. Die Wechselwirkung von religiösen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen verlangt ein Zusammenwirken unterschiedlicher wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen und eröffnet eine Sphäre interdisziplinärer Forschung, die in dieser Buchreihe Raum erhalten soll. Sowohl Theologien verschiedener Konfessionen und Religionen (Katholisch, Orthodox, Evangelisch, Islamisch, Alevi) als auch Religionswissenschaft, Religionsphilosophie, Religionssoziologie, Rechtswissenschaft, Sozialwissenschaft, Judaistik, Islamwissenschaft, Indologie, Tibet- und Buddhismuskunde etc. sind Teil dieses gemeinsamen Projektes. Seit 2018 wird auch die Reihe „Studying Jihadism“ innerhalb der RaT Book Series fortgesetzt.

RaT Book Series is an interdisciplinary and international book series with a peer-review process. It was established in 2012 and has been published by BRILL since 2022. The aim of the book series is to scientifically address the influence of religions on cultural, political, legal, aesthetic and spiritual dynamics in globalised societies. Conversely, the significance of current social transformation processes on religions and religious forms of expression is examined. The interaction of religious and societal changes requires a collaboration of different academic disciplines and opens up a sphere of interdisciplinary research which shall be promoted by this book series. Theologies of different denominations and religions (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Islamic, Alevi) as well as religious studies, philosophy of religion, sociology of religion, law, social science, Jewish studies, Islamic studies, Indology, Tibetan and Buddhist studies, etc. are part of this joint project. Since 2018, the series “Studying Jihadism” has also been continued within the RaT Book Series.
The struggle against the climate crisis and for a livable future on earth raises profound questions of justice that call for theological engagement. Anchored in concrete situations of climate vulnerability and responsibility, this volume investigates the theological epistemologies, practices and imaginaries that have profoundly shaped climate politics in the past and explores possible theological reformulations that can open up sustainable and just futures. With these critical and constructive theological reflections inspired by Liberation Theology, it seeks to contribute to practices of climate justice by inspiring the development of socially and economically just ways of living in global, interspecial community.
Methodologische Grundlagen und Diskursanalysen in international-vergleichender Perspektive
Die Religionspädagogik befindet sich in einem Prozess der Internationalisierung. Ihr eigener Anspruch auf Wissenschaftlichkeit sowie gesellschaftliche Globalisierungstendenzen und der grenzüberschreitende Charakter der Religionen führen dazu, dass religionspädagogisches Wissen unabhängiger von nationalen Grenzen wird. Eine international-vergleichende und transferorientierte bibliometrische Analyse von religionspädagogischen Kernzeitschriften im deutschsprachigen Raum und in Großbritannien legt entsprechende Entwicklungen im Zeitraum von 1970–2000 offen. Dabei werden neben der Rolle wachsender internationaler Kontakte und Netzwerke und der Rezeption ausländischer Autorinnen und Autoren auch inhaltliche Bezüge auf das Ausland indikatorenbasiert analysiert. Neben einem Beitrag zur religionspädagogischen Wissenschaftsforschung bietet die Arbeit auch neue Perspektiven auf Diskurse in der deutschsprachigen und britischen Religionspädagogik.
In The Eastern Christian Tradition in Modern Russian Thought and Beyond, Teresa Obolevitch reflects on the ontology and anthropology of neo-patristic synthesis and its connection to Western philosophy, with a focus on the work of Georges Florovsky and Vladimir Lossky. The book also examines the concept of apophaticism in Russian philosophy: in neo-patristic synthesis and the thought of Semyon Frank and Lev Karsavin, as well as in epistemological and cosmological comparison with process theology. Additionally, Obolevitch’s work undertakes a comparative analysis of the reception of Russian sophiology in the West, especially in the work of Thomas Merton, and also considers similarities between neo-patristic synthesis and Zen Buddhism in the thought of Merton and Sergey Horujy.
Reading Proclus and the Book of Causes, published in three volumes, is a fresh, comprehensive understanding of the history of Neoplatonism from the 9th to the 16th century. This third volume gathers contributions on key concepts of the Platonic tradition (Proclus, Plotinus, Porphyry or Sallustius) inherited and reinterpreted by Arabic (e.g. Avicenna, the Book of Causes), Byzantine (e.g. Maximus the Confessor, Ioane Petritsi) and Latin authors (e.g. Albert the Great, Thomas Aquinas, Berthold of Moosburg, Marsilio Ficino etc.). Two major themes are presently studied: causality (in respect to the One, the henads, the self-constituted substances and the first being) and the noetic triad (being-life-intellect).
The Debate on Sacred Scripture in Early Modern Thought
The Bible is the crucible within which were forged many of the issues most vital to philosophy during the early modern age. Different conceptions of God, the world, and the human being have been constructed (or deconstructed) in relation to the various approaches and readings of the Holy Scriptures. This book explores several of the ways in which philosophers interpreted and made use of the Bible. It aims to provide a new perspective on the subject beyond the traditional opposition “faith versus science” and to reflect the philosophical ways in which the Sacred Scriptures were approached. Early modern philosophers can thus be seen to have transformed the traditional interpretation of the Bible and emphasized its universal moral message. In doing so, they forged new conceptions about nature, politics, and religion, claiming the freedom of thought and scientific inquiry that were to become the main features of modernity.

Volume 1: Concepts, Perspectives, and the Emergence of Augustinian Identity
The culmination of thirty years of research, Eric Leland Saak’s Augustinian Theology in the Later Middle Ages offers a comprehensive, new interpretation of late medieval Augustinianism. The first of a two-volume work, the present book sets the stage and analyzes the conceptual and methodological structures requisite for interpreting the reception of Augustine in the later Middle Ages historically, together with explicating the first two of the four “pillars” of Augustinian theology: the Augustinian Hermits’ political theology; the teaching in the Order’s schools; the Order’s university theology; and its moral theology. Holistically fused with the Order’s religious identity, these distinct yet interconnected components of Augustinian theology, rather than a narrow, theologically defined anti-Pelagianism, provided the context for the emergence of the Reformation.
In Nicholas of Cusa on the Trinitarian Structure of the Innate Criterion of Truth, Paula Pico Estrada offers an analysis of Nicholas of Cusa’s (1401–1464) unitrine conception of the human power of judgment, arguing that the innate criterion that guides human beings to their end is formed by a cognitive, an affective and a social dimension, and that it not only makes possible the systematization and evaluation of cognitive experience but also enables morality.
Based on a close reading of Cusanus’ philosophical treatises, the study deepens our understanding of Nicholas of Cusa’s epistemology, showing that his anthropological conception integrates philosophy and theology.
In this book, Richard Campbell reformulates Anselm’s proof to show that factual evidence confirmed by modern cosmology validly implies that God exists. Anselm’s proof, which was never the “ontological argument” attributed to him, emerges as engaging with current philosophical issues concerning existence and scientific explanation.

Because every observable thing has a beginning, it can be deduced that there is always in reality something than which a greater cannot be thought, which exists necessarily. It follows that its non-existence is inconceivable. Anselm then proves that this is the God in whom he believes, who alone so truly exists that He could not be thought not to exist. The contingent nature of the universe is therefore a consequence of the proven belief that God is the Creator of everything else.
Eine Untersuchung zur Fundamentalstruktur des Panentheismus
Das Buch versteht sich als ein Beitrag zu einer Theorie über das Verhältnis von Absolutem und Endlichem im Rahmen der von Lorenz B. Puntel vorgelegten struktural-systematischen Philosophie.
Dieses Verhältnis soll als die „(primordiale) Einheit von (korrelativer) Einheit und Vielheit“ bzw. als „Autoimmanenz von Immanenz und Transzendenz“ bestimmt werden, was nach Meinung des Autors zugleich die Fundamentalstruktur des richtig verstandenen (Einheit-in-Vielheit-)Panentheismus darstellt: Das allumfassende Absolute stellt eine Einheit dar, welche die Vielheit der endlichen Entitäten umfasst und ihr dennoch auch gegenübersteht. Diese bei vielen Klassikern vorkommende Konzeption stellt eine analytisch-formallogisch orientierte Philosophie vor erhebliche konzeptuelle Schwierigkeiten, die diese Studie mit Ausblick auf eine mögliche Lösung mit Methoden der mathematischen Kategorientheorie artikuliert. Dabei wird im Gespräch mit ausgewählten Klassikern die Seinstheorie der struktural-systematischen Philosophie als ein angemessener philosophischer Theorierahmen vorgestellt, der sich insbesondere in den gegenwärtigen Diskussionen der analytischen Religionsphilosophie als weiterführende Anregung erweist.
