Religious Studies (shouldn’t be confused with theology) is an academic field that aims at understanding religious phenomena within their cultural, social and historical context – for that purpose both anthropological and sociological investigations and sources, as well as religious texts and much more, are consulted. Both thematically and methodologically it’s an academic field with a wide scope. Also for that reason the guide of this type will never be exhaustive or complete. But guess what – you can always contact us, if you can’t find an answer to your query on the pages of this guide.
