Virtual Issues from the Journal of Religious History
The editors of the Journal of Religious History are pleased to present this series of themed Virtual Issues, incorporating articles published in the journal from 1962 to the current volume.
Journal of Religious History Virtual Issues:
Fiftieth Anniversary Virtual Issue
The changing face of religious history over fifty years.
Mission, Colonialism and Religious Identity in the Nineteenth Century
This particular Virtual Issue offers an insight into an era of rapid growth in global trade, slavery, and religious exploration. This collection of scholarship addresses a range of crucial issues for the scholar of mission and colonialism.
The interface between religion and secularism has in recent years generated both heat and light about the evolution of modern post-industrial, post-colonial societies. The 8th Biennial Conference of the Religious History Association aimed to consider the question of the relationship between secularism and history. In conjunction with this, the editors of the Journal of Religious History are pleased to present this virtual issue on the theme of secularism.
The Journal of Religious History recently published a special issue on the topic of Cathar Heresy.
This collection of articles provides evidence of the very vigorous study of medieval dualism, Manichaeism, and Catharism in southern France currently taking place in Australia.
Some contributions are by experts in their fields (Cassidy-Welch, Pegg), others are by experts in other fields whose interest in these topics is considerable (Davidson, Zlatar), and others are by graduate students and early career researchers (Chenu, Chiu, Debergue).
