The XXI World Congress of the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR) will take place in Erfurt, Germany, August 23-29, 2015. The Congress addresses the Dynamics of Religion, Past and Present. Religion as a human, historical, social and cultural phenomenon allows for constant processes of change of religious ideas, practices, discourses, institutions, and social expressions.

The Congress will address the processes of change, the dynamics of religions past, present, and future, on several interconnected levels of analysis and theory, namely that of the individual, community and society, practices and discourses, beliefs, and narrations. These will be addressed within four areas:

  • Religious communities in society: Adaptation and transformation
  • Practices and discourses: Innovation and tradition
  • The individual: Religiosity, spiritualities and individualization
  • Methodology: Representations and interpretations
