Brill's Series in Church History

Brill’s Series in Church History and Religious Culture is a peer-reviewed book series devoted to the history of religion, church, theology, and culture. Based on a broad understanding of religious traditions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and their interconnections, the series focuses on the history of religious experiences, values, and ideas –of groups as well as influential individuals- in their intellectual, social, and political settings. The series emphasizes the interregional, transconfessional, and comparative dimensions of religion in its expression, mediation, consumption, and institutionalization. It contains monographs, source editions, collections of articles, and conference proceedings, preferably in English.

Brill's Series in Church History and Religious Culture is a continuation of the Kerkhistorische Bijdragen book series. For volumes published in Kerkhistorische Bijdragen (volumes 1 to 21), please click here.
