delighted to present the first issue of the Central European Journal for
Contemporary Religion (CEJCR), a new Czech academic periodical dedicated to
current religion and spirituality as well as to contemporary theoretical scholarly
discussion of related topics. Although there is no shortage of academic journals
dedicated to the topics of Comparative Religion and History of Religion in our
country, none of them is specifically focused on contemporary religious life
and related issues, and we felt that a new scholarly journal that would address
such topics is much needed. CEJCR’s intent is to fill this void.
is issued semi-annually both in print and fully online (open access). We have
decided to publish all texts in English in order to make Czech research available
to our colleagues all over the world – and also to invite scholars from other
countries to publish the results of their work in our periodical in the future.
The Journal is issued under the auspices of the Hussite Theological Faculty of
Charles University; the members of the editorial board are Czech Comparative
Religions scholars from various Czech universities and academic institutions.
We hope you
enjoy the first issue and, if you have any suggestions or comments, please do
not hesitate to contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
