Relegere General Call for Papers


Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception is a journal dedicated to the study of reception history, broadly conceived, in the fields of religion and biblical studies.

Relegere welcomes submissions on the transmission, reception, and effect of religious ideas, narratives, and images within any medium and in relation to any religious tradition. We are interested, in particular, in submissions which go beyond the mere cataloguing of influences, or descriptions of the development of tradition, or the recounting of the trajectories of influential religious texts across time, to considerations of theoretical implications.

Relegere is published online two times a year and is open-access. All articles undergo blind peer review. Please register and submit papers online at or email the editors at
