Religion in the Roman Empire (RRE)

Religion in the Roman Empire (RRE) is bold in the sense that it intends to further and document new and integrative perspectives on religion in the Ancient World combining multidisciplinary methodologies. Starting from the notion of "lived religion" it will offer a space to take up recent, but still incipient, research to modify and cross the disciplinary boundaries of History of Religion, Archaeology, Anthropology, Classics, Ancient History, Jewish History, Rabbinics, New Testament, Early Christianity, Patristics, Coptic Studies, Gnostic and Manichean Studies, Late Antiquity and Oriental Languages. We hope to stimulate the development of new approaches that can encompass the local and global trajectories of the multidimensional pluralistic religions of antiquity.

Each volume consists of three issues a year, each of approximately 130 pages in length. It includes an editorial, five to seven main articles, and book reviews. All articles and contributions that exceed 8 pages in length are double-blind peer-reviewed. All articles and contributions are in English.

The first issues deal with "Lived Religion: Appropriations of Religion and Meanings in Situations,"Understanding Objects in Religious Contexts" and with "Practices and Groups," bringing together studies on textual and archaeological material from all areas of the Mediterranean.
