Studies in Interreligious and Intercultural Relations
Editor-in-Chief:
Currents of Encounter invites scholarly contributions that utilize interreligious, intercultural, comparative, postcolonial, and other contemporary critical interdisciplinary approaches from across all religious traditions, to address topical questions on the challenges and opportunities arising from intercultural/interreligious engagements, or the intersections of cultures and religions.

Studies dealing explicitly with the dynamics of the intersection of religious and cultural traditions are increasing every year, and scholars have become aware of the complexity and diversity of interreligious and intercultural relations. Recent literature offers a broad panoply of theoretical approaches from theologies of religions to comparative theologies, from discourse analysis to a postcolonial critique focusing on issues of power, from feminist readings asking about the specific role of women in interreligious dialogue to interreligious hermeneutics exploring how meaning may travel across cultural and religious traditions. Currents of Encounter welcomes this variety of works in these disciplines and from interdisciplinary perspectives aiming thus to contribute to a better understanding of the complexities of interreligious and intercultural themes. The board welcomes both monographs and edited volumes.
Possible domains:
- interreligious studies
- intercultural theology and philosophy
- comparative theology and philosophy
- theologies of religions
Comparisons – Coalitions – Critiques
Editor-in-Chief:
Political and Public Theologies: Comparisons – Coalitions – Critiques seeks to provide a forum for critical and constructive engagements with the significance of theologies for the public square. Connecting the increasingly interdisciplinary fields of political and public theology, the series is interested in the impact that theologies have on public issues and the impact that public issues have on theologies, both theoretically and practically. PPT invites publications from established and emerging scholars that engage with the significance of theologies for the public square from (1) comparative angles that facilitate inter-religious studies, (2) coalitional angles that foster inter-religious solidarities, and (3) critical angles that re-formulate theology as a resource for contemporary controversies. PPT is published in cooperation with the Centre for Theology and Public Issues (CTPI), University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.
Classical Perspectives on Ascent in the Journey to God
Volume Editors: and
How does one grow holy in such times? This question drove the early Christian imagination no less than it does today. Patristic Spirituality: Classical Perspectives on Ascent to the Divine features numerous studies offering an “itinerary” for early Christian believers wishing to enter into the divine presence. Readers will discover an array of perennial early Christian wisdom into the practical challenges of ascent, “a work of God in Christ, transforming and incorporating us,” says Lewis Ayres. See how early Christians cultivated the life of grace with hospitality, silence, almsgiving, and other ascetic practices for human elevation into mystical union with God.

Author:
The first scholarly book on Thomas Vaughan (1621–1666) draws from recent studies in Western esotericism to place his famously difficult writings in their proper context. It shows that they develop themes from a distinctively Rosicrucian synthesis of alchemy, magic, and Christian cabala. Vaughan introduced Rosicrucian documents to English readers and placed them in older philosophical contexts during the breakdown of censorship that followed the English Revolution against the old order in politics and religion. Willard’s book will appeal to students of early modern ideas about religion, science, and society as they were seen by an intelligent and eloquent outsider.

Bologna Studies in Religious History aims at supporting and disseminating research conducted by Italian and International scholars on the History and doctrines of Christianity, Judaism, Islam and religious scholarship in its broader spectrum. The main asset being a historical approach with a historiographical angle, the peer-reviewed series includes analyses both with diachronic and synchronic perspectives, from ancient to modern times, without geographical or temporal limitations.

The series is connected to Fscire, a research institution in Religious Studies, whose activities, projects, publications focus on History, Theology, Exegesis and Philology. Since 1952, Fscire built its research lines on the Dossetti Library which is one of the biggest libraries on history of Christianity in Europe. In 2017 the La Pira Library on History and Doctrines of Islam was founded as its new branch, enlarging Fscire research horizons.

The Cognition and Culture Book Series provides a forum for the field of cognitive accounts of cultural phenomena and investigations that reveal cognitive regularities. The series will include contributions from experimental psychology, developmental psychology, social cognition, neuroscience, human evolution, cognitive anthropology, and cognitive comparative religion as well as cross-cultural studies that emphasize regularities. The primary focus will be on explanations of cultural phenomena in terms of acquisition, representation and transmission involving common cognitive regularities without excluding the study of cultural differences.
