Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion Series

The Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion Series is broadly concerned with theories of religion, the history and nature of religious studies, religious thought, theological investigation, and the philosophy of religion. Approaches to the study of religion or religious studies that tend to defy traditional disciplinary boundaries are welcome, as are more traditional studies of major thinkers and intellectual movements. The common thread to texts in this series is that they all engage in a critical reflection on either a religious way of thinking or a way of thinking about religion.
