    Special Issue on Religion and Culture


    Religion appears in different forms in different times, cultures, ethnic groups and regions. It is a basic and unique feature of human culture. An element of a religion is often closely related to other elements. The anthropological study of religion mainly explores the origin of primitive religion and takes various primitive religions as the object of study in order to understand the role played by religion in primitive tribes and the function of its worship rites. Religious studies must be intercultural and interdisciplinary, including cultural studies, psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, history, literature and so on. Therefore, religious research is an important part of the humanities, and it has a profound influence on people's ideas, habits and so on.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring religion and culture. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Religious organizations (such as churches)
    • Religious literature
    • Religious philosophy
    • Religious politics
    • Secularism and atheism
    • Religious belief
    • Religious activities (such as sacrifices and rituals)
    • Religious art (such as religious buildings, religious paintings and religious music)
    • Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Judaism and so on

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Religion and Culture” should be chosen during your submission.
