Religious Evolution

After evolutionism was booming around 1900, its flaws came to light in the course of the 20th century, and the topic of religious evolution became rather marginal. For the past 25 years, research on the topic has found renewed interest among historians of religion, but also in research from cognitive and social science perspectives. The series »Religious Evolution« (RE) is a platform for interdisciplinary theoretical and empirical research on the evolution of religion. The fact that the series' acronym bears the name of the ancient Egyptian sun god is coincidental but appropriate.

The series is edited by Volkhard Krech.
