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.

Ecumenism in the Churches (19th-21st Century)
A History of the Desire for Christian Unity is a multi-volume reference work on the history of ecumenism. The ecumenical movement is understood as a twentieth-century movement of European origin with a global reach. This reference work is a reconstruction of the arc of time in which the Christian churches transitioned from a position of hostility to one of dialogue, and from separation to forms of communion. Scholars across the continents and disciplines explore a history of individuals and groups, generations and assemblies, documents and programs, theologies and practices, all firmly placed within the framework of a desire for unity.

This first volume traces the long-term roots and reconstructs the historical, theological, and political junctures that marked the beginning of a distinctive movement that runs throughout the nineteenth and into the heart of the twentieth century.
