Salo W. Baron was considered the greatest Jewish historian of the twentieth century. He laid the ground work for how Jews perceive themselves and are perceived by others. The present series publishes new perspectives in the research on the Jewish experience of both distinguished and aspiring scholars who continue Salo Baron’s work. Contributions to the series focus on the relationship of Jews and non-Jews and perceptions and understandings of Judaism, including but not limited to the history, culture, religion, and institutions of the Jewish people, as well as on their persecution.

Im Auftrrag der Görres-Gesellschaft.
This wide-ranging and fascinating series supplements a growing catalogue of historical, sociological, and theological scholarship in the thriving and interdisciplinary field of Quaker Studies. Individual volumes will speak to the broad spectrum of Quaker belief and practice, to the significance of the history of Quaker traditions, and to the many areas in which Quaker Studies contributes to other fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Work on Quakerism impacts both wider church history and theological debate, as well as current themes in the sociology of religion. The Quaker attitude to spiritual equality also engages women’s studies scholars, and the Quaker commitment to peace and social justice relates to wider issues of political theory and peace studies. As the field of Quaker Studies continues to grow and redefine itself, this series will make a significant contribution to making up-to-date scholarship accessible to specialists as well as to a broad academic community.
In Western ecumenical research, the perception of Orthodox theology still suffers from the stereotype of representing a solidified traditionalism. In contrast, Orthodox theology is dominated by the clichéd notion of Western Christianity as modernism contrary to tradition. This overlooks the many interesting and novel research approaches. On the one hand, these are developed at orthodox institutions worldwide in response to modern scientific questions, and on the other hand they reveal the continuity of the Christian heritage in change in Protestant and Catholic drafts. The series aims to provide a forum for these research approaches and thus enrich the ecumenical discussion with contributions that have been written from a culturally and religiously different background. The series focuses on monographs, but is also open to inter- and transdisciplinary scholarly anthologies. It accepts contributions in German, English and French. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed.
Mit der Globalisierung entstehen zunehmend komplexe Abhängigkeiten auch auf der kulturellen Ebene. Identitäten und Weltanschauungen verändern sich daher mit einer zunehmenden Dynamik, die nur mit Blick sowohl auf die lokale Tradition als auch die interkulturell-globale Dimension verstanden werden kann. Dies gilt insbesondere für Religionen und religiöse Phänomene. Die Reihe Global Religion | Religion global stellt sich dieser für die Moderne typischen reflexiven Verschränkung, indem sie durch eine kulturanalytische Perspektive geprägt ist, die Religionen, religiöse Phänomene und Weltanschauungen der heutigen Zeit in ihrer komplexen Verwobenheit reflektiert. Theologisch fundiert ist sie dadurch, dass (religiöse) Überzeugungen auch von innen heraus betrachtet und verstanden werden. Inhaltlich werden in der Reihe Studien und Sammelbände aufgenommen, die lokale Situationen in ihrer religiös-weltanschaulichen Prägung oder überregionale/globale religiöse Phänomene mit Bezug zur heutigen Situation bearbeiten. Damit soll ein Mosaik entstehen, das anhand einzelner Untersuchungen tiefgründig die heutige Welt in ihren aktuellen weltanschaulich-religiösen Dynamiken erfasst.

With globalization, increasingly complex interdependencies are also emerging at the cultural level. Identities and worldviews are therefore changing with increasing dynamism, which can only be understood with a view to both the local tradition and the intercultural-global dimension. This is especially true for religions and religious phenomena. The series Global Religion | Religion global confronts this reflexive entanglement, which is typical for modernity, by being characterized by a cultural-analytical perspective that reflects religions, religious phenomena, and worldviews of today in their complex interconnectedness. It is theologically grounded in that (religious) convictions are also viewed and understood from within. In terms of content, the series includes studies and anthologies that deal with local situations in their religious-ideological character or supra-regional/global religious phenomena with reference to today’s situation. In this way, a mosaic is to be created which, on the basis of individual studies, profoundly grasps today’s world in its current ideological-religious dynamics.

JRAT Supplementa is an interdisciplinary, international, online open-access book series with a double-blind peer-review process. It is closely linked to the Interdisciplinary Journal for Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society (JRAT). The Supplementa series was founded to supplement the journal with the publication of monographs, translations of important works and strongly focused anthologies. Both publications serve to introduce the research topics of the Research Centre “Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society” (RaT, University of Vienna) into the international discourse. The aim of both JRAT and JRAT Supplementa is to investigate the contribution of religion to the cultural, political, legal, and aesthetic dynamics in present-day pluralistic societies.

Das »Kirchenmusikalische Jahrbuch« wurde 1886 im Umkreis der katholischen kirchenmusikalischen Bewegung des Cäcilianismus gegründet, seit 1909 finanziell gefördert durch die Görres-Gesellschaft und von 1930 bis 1982 herausgegeben vom Allgemeinen Cäcilienverband.

Ursprünglich der Erforschung der Geschichte der Kirchenmusik verpflichtet, sind die wissenschaftlichen Beiträge in neuerer Zeit weiter gespannt und behandeln auch die geistliche Musik allgemein, die evangelische Kirchenmusik, die christliche Hymnologie, die Orgelmusik und -kunde. Das »Kirchenmusikalische Jahrbuch« ist das einzige deutschsprachige Periodikum seiner Art. Ergänzt wird es seit 1994 monographisch durch die im Verlag Ferdinand Schöningh erscheinenden »Beiträge zur Geschichte der Kirchenmusik«.
