In Western ecumenical research, the perception of Orthodox theology still suffers from the stereotype of representing a solidified traditionalism. In contrast, Orthodox theology is dominated by the clichéd notion of Western Christianity as modernism contrary to tradition. This overlooks the many interesting and novel research approaches. On the one hand, these are developed at orthodox institutions worldwide in response to modern scientific questions, and on the other hand they reveal the continuity of the Christian heritage in change in Protestant and Catholic drafts. The series aims to provide a forum for these research approaches and thus enrich the ecumenical discussion with contributions that have been written from a culturally and religiously different background. The series focuses on monographs, but is also open to inter- and transdisciplinary scholarly anthologies. It accepts contributions in German, English and French. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed.
Papyrology has always interested scholars of the New Testament and of Christian origins, mainly because of the discovery of papyrus copies of texts from the Christian scriptures. However, what documentary papyri, ostraca, and tablets indicate about issues of everyday Greco-Roman life has also much to contribute to the understanding of early Christ groups. These issues include ancient economy and agriculture, labor and social relations, reading cultures, administration, and a variety of other topics. The PNT series is designed to introduce students and teachers to the value of this material. The volumes provide introductions, evaluations, and conclusions. Many documents are presented in their entirety with an English translation and commentary. The authors cover the state of papyrological research and supplement it with their own conclusions and updates, making the series also of interest to scholars of Papyrology, Biblical Studies, Ancient History, and Classics.
The overarching goal of the Series is to incorporate the history and culture of Roma into the mainstream of European and global academia. To achieve this goal, the series Roma History and Culture publishes books (monographs, edited volumes, and collections of historical sources) from wide range of disciplines – history, ethnography, anthropology, sociology, political science, religion, cultural studies, literature studies, film, and art history, with particular focus on comparative studies – that offer innovative, critical and, above all, reliable and fully documented insights into Roma history and culture that relies on documents, critical rereading and rethinking of historical sources and existing research. This approach marks a critical turn in the academic studies of Roma history and culture that in the past all too often were blighted by stereotypes and myths, especially the specious belief that there are not enough preserved written sources on the Roma past to allow for the emergence of Roma history as a field in its own right. The series thus, shifts and challenges prevailing academic narratives that Roma are nothing else but a detached, marginalised community and a passive object of different state governments’ policies by presenting, analysing and contextualising the agency of Roma as actors in their own right, with their own views and visions of the development for the Roma and their communities. In this way the volumes published in the Roma book series present and contribute to the incorporation of the Roma past and present into the mainstream of European and global historiography instead of confining Roma history and culture to some narrow ethnic box. Research work on the Roma from Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe constitutes the very academic focus of the proposed Book Series, which aspires to also cover the past and cultures of other communities that have historically been known under the general label “Gypsies”, such as the Sinti, Manush, Kale, Romanichals, Irish and Scottish Travelers, etc.
Mit dieser Reihe wird ein Beitrag zur Entwicklung einer europäischen Geschichtsschreibung geleistet, denn die Revolutions- und Napoleonischen Kriege zwischen 1792 und 1815 prägten die europäische Geschichte so nachhaltig wie kein anderer bewaffneter Konflikt zwischen Dreißigjährigem Krieg und 1. Weltkrieg. Aufgrund ihrer weitreichenden Folgen für Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Politik spielten sie nicht nur in der zeitgenössischen Erfahrung, sondern auch im kollektiven Gedächtnis eine zentrale Rolle.
Die in der Reihe erscheinenden Studien untersuchen, wie die Kriegsjahre 1792 - 1815 in den beteiligten Nationen und Regionen erfahren und erinnert wurden, welche Faktoren das kommunikative Gedächtnis formten und was davon in das kulturelle Gedächtnis aufgenommen wurde.
In der international ausgerichteten Reihe "Encounters between Judaism and Christianity" erscheinen wissenschaftliche Arbeiten zu Konstituierungs- und Differenzierungsprozessen jüdischer und christlicher Religion in Geschichte und Gegenwart. Die Einzelbände behandeln exegetisch-hermeneutische, historische, systematische, kulturwissenschaftliche und zeitgeschichtliche Aspekte des Themenfeldes in der Verantwortung der einzelnen Fachdisziplinen und zugleich in fächerübergreifender Perspektive. Ein besonderes Augenmerk der Studien gilt den religiösen und kulturellen Kontaktpunkten und Reibungsflächen zwischen Judentum und Christentum, deren wissenschaftliche Betrachtung dem gegenseitigen Verständnis nach einer langen Geschichte kirchlicher Judenfeindschaft neue Impulse zu geben vermag.

The internationally focused series Encounters between Judaism and Christianity publishes studies on the processes of formation and differentiation of Jewish and Christian religion past and present. SJC-volumes deal with exegetical-hermeneutical, historical, systematic, cultural-historical and contemporary issues according to the standards of the individual disciplines and from a cross-disciplinary perspective. Particular attention is paid to the areas both of cultural interaction and of friction between Judaism and Christianity. After a long history of ecclesiastical hostility against Jews and after the experiences of the 20th century the scholarly examination of these topics can provide new impulses for improving mutual understanding.
Die von Erik Ode und Michael Obermaier herausgegebene Reihe Pädagogische Diskurse vertritt die Erziehungs- und Bildungswissenschaften in ihrer ganzen disziplinären Breite und besteht sowohl aus Monografien als auch aus Sammelbänden. Im Zentrum stehen theoriegeleitete, methodologische sowie praxisorientierte Auseinandersetzungen mit pädagogischen Grundfragen und -problemen, mit den soziokulturellen Bedingungsgefügen von Betreuung, Erziehung und Bildung über die Lebensspanne sowie kritische Analysen ihrer institutionellen und außerinstitutionellen Orte und Praxen.
Salo W. Baron was considered the greatest Jewish historian of the twentieth century. He laid the ground work for how Jews perceive themselves and are perceived by others. The present series publishes new perspectives in the research on the Jewish experience of both distinguished and aspiring scholars who continue Salo Baron’s work. Contributions to the series focus on the relationship of Jews and non-Jews and perceptions and understandings of Judaism, including but not limited to the history, culture, religion, and institutions of the Jewish people, as well as on their persecution.
RaT Book Series ist eine interdisziplinäre und internationale Buchreihe mit peer-review Verfahren. Sie wurde 2012 gegründet und wird seit 2022 bei BRILL verlegt. Das Ziel der Buchreihe besteht in der wissenschaftlichen Thematisierung des Einflusses von Religionen auf kulturelle, politische, rechtliche, ästhetische und geistige Dynamiken in globalisierten Gesellschaften. Umgekehrt wird die Bedeutung von aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Transformationsprozessen auf Religionen und religiöse Ausdrucksformen untersucht. Die Wechselwirkung von religiösen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen verlangt ein Zusammenwirken unterschiedlicher wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen und eröffnet eine Sphäre interdisziplinärer Forschung, die in dieser Buchreihe Raum erhalten soll. Sowohl Theologien verschiedener Konfessionen und Religionen (Katholisch, Orthodox, Evangelisch, Islamisch, Alevi) als auch Religionswissenschaft, Religionsphilosophie, Religionssoziologie, Rechtswissenschaft, Sozialwissenschaft, Judaistik, Islamwissenschaft, Indologie, Tibet- und Buddhismuskunde etc. sind Teil dieses gemeinsamen Projektes. Seit 2018 wird auch die Reihe „Studying Jihadism“ innerhalb der RaT Book Series fortgesetzt.

RaT Book Series is an interdisciplinary and international book series with a peer-review process. It was established in 2012 and has been published by BRILL since 2022. The aim of the book series is to scientifically address the influence of religions on cultural, political, legal, aesthetic and spiritual dynamics in globalised societies. Conversely, the significance of current social transformation processes on religions and religious forms of expression is examined. The interaction of religious and societal changes requires a collaboration of different academic disciplines and opens up a sphere of interdisciplinary research which shall be promoted by this book series. Theologies of different denominations and religions (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Islamic, Alevi) as well as religious studies, philosophy of religion, sociology of religion, law, social science, Jewish studies, Islamic studies, Indology, Tibetan and Buddhist studies, etc. are part of this joint project. Since 2018, the series “Studying Jihadism” has also been continued within the RaT Book Series.
