    Religious Studies in India. Banaras Hindu University: Religion and Universal Human Values.Clemens Cavallin & Ã…ke Sander - 2018 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 17 (50):30-45.
    The lack of academic religious studies in India has several causes: the choice of the secular University of London as model for the first universities in India in 1857, the secular constitution, the secularist approach of the first prime minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, and the explosive relation between major faith traditions. However, with the waning of the Indian secularist framework and the continued power and influence of Hindutva ideology, there is a need to discuss different models for (...)

    Using the “F-Word” in Religious Studies.James R. Lewis - 2014 - Alternative Spirituality and Religion Review 5 (2):188-204.
    The present article proposes that the notion of forgery be incorporated as an analytic category within religious studies. Following a brief outline of three key periods of religious studies, the factors that have made researchers hesitant to deal with the topic are examined. Religious forgeries are then discussed in terms of different parameters, such as the age of the fabrication, the extent of the forgery and the mode of revelation. With the exception of forgeries created (...)

    After the State Church. A Reflection on the Relation Between Theology and Religious Studies in Contemporary Sweden.Clemens Cavallin - 2011 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 10 (29):43-63.
    When the Church of Sweden ceased to be a state church in the year 2000, the parameters for a change in the relation between academic theology and religious studies ( religionsvetenskap ) at the state universities in Sweden was in place. My article, which is intended as a contribution to the sometimes unnecessarily agonistic discussion following the sharp critique levelled by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (Högskoleverket) in 2008, focuses on two basic oppositions underlying the present (...)

    Birth and Hindering of Religious Studies at the University of Cluj. A Historical Overview.Codruta Cuceu & Horatiu Crisan - 2007 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 6 (16):47-58.
    This study will focus on the birth of studies related to the domain of religion at the University of Cluj, starting with the interwar period, then following with the communist period. The paper aims to offer an exhaustive depiction of what has been done in the academic milieu from 1919 to 1989, concerning the domain of religion, excluding Theological studies. We tried to make the connection, from a historical perspective, between the changes supervened in the Romanian official, political (...)

    Phenomenology of Religion and the Art of Story-Telling: The Relevance of William Golding'S ‘The Inheritors’ To Religious Studies*: C. J. ARTHUR.C. J. Arthur - 1987 - Religious Studies 23 (1):59-79.
    One of the most extensive yet least conclusive methodological debates within religious studies revolves around the question of what, precisely, the phenomenology of religion is and what contribution it can make to the study of religion. I do not intend to answer this important question here. To do so satisfactorily would require a range of historical, philosophical and methodological inquiry which would go quite beyond the bounds of a single article. My intention in this paper is, by comparison, (...)

    Abordări metodologice în studiile religioase/ Methodological Approaches in Religious Studies.Moshe Idel - 2007 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 6 (16):5-20.
    “Religion” is a conglomerate of ideas, cosmologies, beliefs, institutions, hierarchies, elites and rites that vary with time and place, even when one “single” religion is concerned. The methodologies available take one or two of these numerous aspects into consideration, reducing religion’s complexity to a rather simplistic unity. In order to avoid this situation, the ensuing conclusion is a recommendation for methodological eclecticism. The text attempts to characterize not specific scholars or schools but major concerns that define the specificity of particular (...)

    Interpreting Religion: The Impact of Friedrich Schleiermacher’s "Reden Über Die Religion" for Religious Studies and Theology.Dietrich Korsch & Amber Griffioen (eds.) - 2011 - Mohr Siebeck.
    The term religion is indispensable to the subject matter of both religious studies and theology. Many approaches attempt a reductive, essentialist, functionalist, or other type of unifying definition, but these approaches tend to rest on various, often controversial sets of presuppositions. Indeed, it seems impossible to overcome the vast plurality of understandings of religion as the academic fields that deal with religion splinter and proliferate, thereby inhibiting the rational treatment of a very important dimension of modern society. The (...)

    Between Dancing and Writing: The Practice of Religious Studies.Kimerer L. LaMothe - 2004 - Fordham University Press.
    This book provides philosophical grounds for an emerging area of scholarship: the study of religion and dance. In the first part, LaMothe investigates why scholars in religious studies have tended to overlook dance, or rhythmic bodily movement, in favor of textual expressions of religious life. In close readings of Descartes, Kant, Schleiermacher, Hegel, and Kierkegaard, LaMothe traces this attitude to formative moments of the field in which philosophers relied upon the practice of writing to mediate between the (...)

    Comprehensive Religious Studies in Public Education: Educating for a Religiously Literate Society.Suzanne Rosenblith & Bea Bailey - 2007 - Educational Studies 42 (2):93-111.
    This article aims to enlarge the conversation about religion and public education by inviting readers to think about the benefits to be gained in society by providing a comprehensive religious studies curriculum in our public schools. In such a program, students will develop knowledge and understanding about various religious traditions, forge greater respect for the religious (and nonreligious) other, and think through existential concerns that have interested human beings for thousands of years. While recognizing that such (...)

    Philosophy of Religion and Religious Studies in Modern-Day Russia.T. Malevich & K. Karpov - 2014 - Studies in East European Thought 66 (3-4):227-244.
    In Russia, philosophy of religion, likewise religious studies, only managed to claim their name, let alone their right for self-realisation, as late as the early 1990s. The article represents an attempt to elicit the maximum possible number of primary methodological accounts, conceptual divergences and discussions pertaining to both the domain of understanding and that of studying the phenomenon of religion and the variety of religious expression, as well as methods of establishing the actual interdisciplinary relations between (...) studies and the philosophy of religion, with their disciplinary scope defined, on the one hand, and contiguous scientific disciplines and worldview discourses on the other.

    The Basis of Correctness in the Religious Studies Classroom.Craig Bourne, Emily Caddick Bourne & Clare Jarmy - 2016 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 50 (4):669-688.
    What is it that makes a student's answer correct or incorrect in Religious Studies? In practice, the standards of correctness in the Religious Studies classroom are generally applied with relative ease by teachers and students. Nevertheless, they are problematic. We shall argue that correctness does not come from either the students or the teacher believing that what has been said is true. This raises the question: what is correctness, if it does not come down to truth? (...)

  16. Religious Studies and Theology in the University: 'Some Ambiguities' Revisited.Gregory W. Dawes - 1996 - Religion 26:49-68.
    What is the relationship between religious studies and theology? Do both have a place within the university? This paper will argue that no clear distinction can be drawn between religious studies and theology on the level of the methods they employ. Each is multidisciplinary and each is able to address questions of religious truth. They can be distinguished only by asking `What is the question which each is attempting to answer?'. Religious studies addresses (...)

    Applying Alfred Adler's Principles And Ideas To Religious Studies.Zoltán Ambrus - 2007 - Journal for the Study of Religions and Ideologies 6 (16):30-39.
    By the integrative value-like approach to the idea of God and to the function of religion, A. Adler’s individual psychology provides religious studies with considerable axiological and praxiological footings. Filling individual and societal needs within the contemporary world, religion is constituted as an essential factor in the growth and development of the sense of community as a foundation of democratic cohabitation. Adlerian psychology puts forward a holistic-integrative approach to the human being that can be applied to the area (...)

    The Third Way of Religious Studies: Beyond Sui Generis Religious Studies and the Postmodernists.Donald M. Braxton - 2009 - Zygon 44 (2):389-413.
    This essay advocates dual-inheritance theory for the renewal of Religious Studies. Not by Genes Alone , by Peter J. Richerson and Robert Boyd (2005), presents this approach in an admirably clear manner. To make my case, I survey the development of Religious Studies since the Enlightenment, with special attention to the American context. The historical survey brings us to the dawn of the twenty-first century, where Religious Studies is often unnecessarily limited to sui generis (...)

    Religious Studies, Faith, and the Presumption of Naturalism.Gregory W. Dawes - 2011 - Journal of Religion and Society 5.
    In a recent defence of what he calls "study by religion," Robert Ensign suggests that alleged divine revelations represent public forms of knowledge, which should not be excluded from the academy. But at least according to two major Christian thinkers, namely Thomas Aquinas and John Calvin, revelation is received by an act of faith, which rests on evidence that is person-relative and therefore not open to public scrutiny. If religious studies is to remain a public discipline, whose arguments (...)

    The Impact of Gender on Religious Studies.Morny Joy - 2010 - Diogenes 57 (1):93-102.
    The theme of gender in religion has not been dealt with homogenously given the many research areas that feed into the discipline of religious studies. This paper reviews the different uses of "gender" over the last 20 years. It notes that, though there is no single definition of the word, "gender" as a term has had a very great impact on the way women have formulated their demand for equality of treatment and renegotiated or even raised new claims (...)

    Ascent of the Mountain, Flight of the Dove. An Invitation to Religious Studies[REVIEW]F. H. - 1971 - Review of Metaphysics 25 (2):362-362.
    Since this book is an "invitation to religious studies," its content and style reflect the author's conception of what religious studies are. Religion he describes in several ways, though usually in a broad sense. "Religion is the acting out of a vision of personal identity and human community. Religion is constituted by the most ultimate, least easily surrendered, most comprehensive choices a person or a society acts out." Again, "religion is a conversion from the ordinary, given, (...)
