About the Journal

The Bulletin began life in 1971 as the CSSR Bulletin when it was published by the Council of Societies for the Study of Religion. In 2009 the Council disbanded and the journal moved to Equinox.

Historically the journal has published articles that address religion in general, the history of the field of religious studies, method and theory in the study of religion, and pedagogical practices. The Journal has a companion Blog and remains closely associated with the North American Association for the Study of Religion (NAASR), whose members may receive the Bulletin at a special rate.
