As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in Theological Traditions is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.
Brill Research Perspectives in Theological Traditions presents extended essays addressing the current research into the theology and doctrine of Christianity’s diverse traditions as well as similar bodies of thought in other religious traditions. In each issue—typically fifty to one-hundred pages in length including annotated bibliographies – expert scholars map out the current field of research and provide a state of the art account of the subject. Our authors provide historical overviews of important developments, discuss influential theological figures and their ongoing reception, as well as analyzing contemporary debates about the history, present state, and emerging future of specific confessional theological traditions.
Brill Research Perspectives in Theological Traditions is an invaluable resource for students wishing to become and stay current with the latest research concerning the wide-range of Christian and other religious traditions, as well as a dynamic and expert resource for students of theology, history, and related fields.
