Religions in Austria is a unique series that provides scholars of the humanities and social sciences with thorough insights into the religious scene of Austria, past and present, from the perspective of religionswissenschaft. Behind the various contributions lies intensive empirical and textual research exploring Austria’s religious diversity in detail. If the series did not already exist, it would have to be invented.
