About the Journal

The Journal of Religious History, Literature and Culture has consciously sought to adopt wide parameters for its interests: the history, literature and culture of religion. These parameters are not confined to any one period or to Wales or Christianity and it is hoped that in the coming issues the journal will encompass the breadth of its title. The journal aims to provide coverage of those aspects of religious culture which illuminate and exemplify religious practice and ideas. The journal is issued twice a year, once as a regular form and once as a special themed issue.
