Call for Proposals for Topical Issue of Open Theology

 In Call for Papers, Uncategorized

Dear Sir or Madam,

I represent the journal ‘Open Theology’ published by De Gruyter. You may find more details about the journal and our previous publications at

Open Theology

Open Theology is an international Open Access, peer-reviewed academic journal that welcomes contributions written in English addressing religion in its various forms and aspects: historical, theological, sociological, psychological, and other. The journal encompasses all major disciplines of Theology and Religious Studies, presenting doctrine, history, organization and everyday life of various types of religious groups and the relations between them. We publish articles from the field of Theology as well as Philosophy, Sociology and Psychology of Religion and also dialogue between Religion and Science. The Open Theology 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. The aim of the journal is to promote an international and interdisciplinary dialogue in the field of Theology and Religious Studies. The journal seeks also to provide researchers, pastors and other interested persons with the fruits of academic studies.

We are currently collecting proposals for topical issues to be published in 2022- please find the call appended below. If you would like to publish the papers from the conference “CFP: Call for Oxford Templeton Visiting Fellowships” as a topical issue of our journal, please do not hesitate to send us your proposal.

With best regards,

Magdalena Folgart
Assistant Editor
