Center for Religious Studies
The Center for Religious Studies examines and conducts research into issues related religion. The periodical Religion and Culture published by the center seeks to motivate academic research into the various phenomena and functions of religion and culture, and to extend interest in the field. The periodical was founded in 1995 in response to wide demand in religious and academic circles for a professional academic journal on religious issues. At present projects are in progress to update the journal in line with the information age through database build-up and an on-line journal. The center for Religious Studies examines and conducts research into issues related religion.
