In 2012 Relegere: Studies in Religion and Reception will publish a special issue dedicated to reception histories of the end times, however they might be imagined, in religious contexts. We welcome reception histories not only of Christian imaginaries of the book of Revelation, but also of the end of days in other traditions and in more diffuse settings such as the Western esoteric and New Age milieus. Relegere is an online, open-access journal dedicated to the study of reception history, broadly conceived, both within and across religious traditions. Relegere publishes studies of the transmission, reception, and effect of religious ideas, narratives, and images within any medium and in relation to any religious tradition.
If you are interested in submitting to Relegere’s “Histories of the End,” please send an
abstract of a maximum of 300 words to email@example.com by December 1, 2011.
