The EI3 appears in substantial parts each year, both online and in print. The new scope includes comprehensive coverage of Islam in the twentieth century and of Muslim minorities all over the world.

Due to the ecclesiastical and social changes in recent years, church and religious law face major challenges and modifications. The editors have therefore developed a new encyclopedia for church and religious law. It is supposed to provide users with well-founded orientation and information on the latest state of research on the historically evolved, valid own law of the churches and religious communities and their legal relations to the state.

The Lexikon für Kirchen- und Religionsrecht (LKRR) is published in four volumes, print and online in German, and offers reliable and concise information in over 2,600 lemmas or keywords on the fundamental questions of the internal law of churches and religious communities and of religious law.

In addition to questions of state law and ecclesiastical law of the Catholic and Protestant Churches, central contents of the ecclesiastical law of the Orthodox Churches as well as the law of Judaism and Islam are dealt with. The encyclopedia is committed to an interreligious and ecumenical perspective and offers the user the opportunity to compare the different areas of law. The collaboration of reputable scholars of state law, religious law and Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Jewish and Islamic law guarantees well-founded and qualified information. The encyclopedia is a reliable and essential source of information for both theologians and lawyers in their academic studies, in science, in civil and ecclesiastical administration, as well as in pastoral counselling and professional practice.

This reference work is also available as an online publication.
Critical Approaches to Early Christianity publishes monographs and volumes of collected essays by scholars that exemplify the application of theories and approaches that are novel, interdisciplinary, or that disrupt or expand traditional ways of viewing the literature and thought of the early Christian world and its settings.

Arabic Christianity

Texts and Studies

Christian Arabic literature offers a rich, diverse, and hitherto insufficiently explored record of the social, cultural, and intellectual history of Middle Eastern Christians from the seventh century to the present. The Arabic Christianity series, the first of its kind, provides a unique forum for a comprehensive examination of all Christian communities in the Middle East by publishing editions and analyses of their literary heritage in Arabic. It also systematically explores connections between Christian Arabic and neighbouring fields, including Islamic studies.

The series welcomes original monographs and edited collections on Christian Arabic Studies, understood broadly, as well as critical editions and translations of Christian Arabic works. Interdisciplinary contributions on the relations between Christian Arabic and Islamic Studies, Byzantine Studies, Syriac Studies, Late Antique Studies, Early Modern Studies, Art History, and similar fields are particularly welcome. For submissions and inquiries, please contact the Series Editor (atreiger@dal.ca) or the Publisher (boogert@brill.com).

Conceived of as a supplement to the International Journal for the Study of Skepticism, the series Brill Studies in Skepticism aims to publish original historical scholarship and cutting-edge contemporary research on philosophical skepticism. The series covers a wide range of areas: the history of ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary skepticism, as well as systematic discussions of skeptical problems and arguments in epistemology, metaethics, philosophy of religion, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of language. Brill Studies in Skepticism therefore welcomes proposals for monographs and edited volumes from historians of philosophy and contemporary philosophers working in a variety of methods and traditions.

All proposals are evaluated by the Series Editors with the assistance of the members of the Advisory Board. If the proposed monograph or edited volume is deemed to make an original contribution to the study of the history or significance of philosophical skepticism, the author or editor will be invited to submit a complete manuscript, which will undergo double-blind peer review.

The Series Editors and the members of the Advisory Board are excluded from authoring monographs and from participating in edited volumes in the series.

The book series Contemporary Archive of the Islamic World offers political and economic reports about the countries of the Islamic world from the mid-1970s until the present-day. Originally published in a yearbook format covering the entire Middle East each year, the present series offers the accumulated contributions per country for all available years. These country surveys were authored by knowledgeable insiders – academics, journalists, politicians, etc. – whose reports are both reliable and accessible. The series is an invaluable resource for researchers and is also suitable for classroom use.

This series focuses on environmental and sustainable development in Southeast Asia and the wider Asia-Pacific region, where many scientific, governance, and societal questions emerge at the local, national, regional and global levels. Such questions call for research and publications with theoretical perspectives, as well as studies that provide rich empirical and comparative analysis originated from the region.

The volumes will explore the political ecology in the context of local, regional and global governance, either dealing with the interaction between global agreements and their implementation and the roles that multi-level institutions play in the decision-making process, or the engagement and impact of societal stakeholders, including NGOs, civil society organizations, and citizens, which are critical to the success of long-term sustainable development, thus very relevant to this series.

The series welcomes contributions from the social sciences, including political science, economics, geography, sociology, anthropology, development studies and law, as well as inter-disciplinary work with the natural sciences.

For more information concerning the series and the manuscript submission process, please contact series editor Ronald Holzhacker at r.l.holzhacker@rug.nl or Brill acquisitions editor Chunyan Shu at shu@brill.com.
