Entangled Religions is an interdisciplinary open-access journal, published online by the Käte Hamburger Kolleg Dynamics in the History of Religions between Asia and Europe as part of the Center for Religious Studies at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. The journal is edited by an international board of renowned scholars from the fields of Religious Studies, History, Sociology, Philosophy, Islamic studies, Jewish Studies, Buddhist Studies, and Sinology.
We welcome papers which address the overarching theme of religious contact and transfer. Contributions to Entangled Religions can address research questions such as:
- How have situations of contact between religious groups influenced the development of religious thought?
- How can obvious parallels between different religions, such as similarities in rituals or in figures of thought, be identified, traced in history, and explained? How have rituals and concepts travelled from one religion to another?
- How do followers of different religious strands interact, argue, and articulate their respective positions in relation to each other?
