Open Theology

A peer-reviewed, open access journal

Open Theology: peer-reviewed, open access journal Open Theology is an international Open Access, peer-reviewed academic journal that publishes research articles of established and emerging scholars in the field of religion, relevant from academic and practical points of view addressing religion in its various forms and aspects: historical, theological, sociological, psychological, and other.

The journal does not present views of any particular theological school nor of a particular religious organization. The contributions are written by researchers who represent different religious views. The authors present their research concerning the old religious traditions as well as new religious movements.
