New Oxford Research Encyclopedia Articles Up!

By Paul A. Djupe

As coeditor-in-chief with Mark Rozell (George Mason University) and the late Ted Jelen (UNLV), we assembled a great team of associate editors and recruited over 100 authors from across the world to write over 100 articles representing the major lines of inquiry in religion and politics. To date, 24 articles have appeared online and the pace of posting should continue. At any point you can use this link to see what articles have appeared online.

After reading at least half of them, there is no doubt in my mind that this represents the most comprehensive depiction of scholarship to date in religion and politics (authors went to pains to be interdisciplinary). This tremendous resource should serve to fuel innovation in the field as there is no excuse for reinventing the wheel – getting up to speed in a research area should prove far less daunting given this collection.
