Religious Studies and Theology disseminates cutting edge research that reflects and contributes to enriching academic debate and public discourse on issues that matter in our world. Rigorous scholarly commentary, in expository essay format, engages both disciplinary and educated cross-sectoral readers. National and international contributors utilise a range of methodologies to explore understandings of the varied and complex phenomenon of religion and spirituality in the contemporary world. This international journal gives special attention to studies on religion and religious communities in Canada, reflecting the multicultural character of the country and its place as a plural nation within our interconnected global community.
