Literature, Religion, and Postsecular Studies
Edited by Lori Branch

Literature, Religion, and Postsecular Studies publishes scholarship on the influence of religion on literature and of literature on religion from the sixteenth century onward. Books in the series include studies of religious rhetoric or allegory; of the secularization of religion, ritual, and religious life; and of the emerging identity of postsecular studies and literary criticism. We are not accepting unsolicited manuscripts at this time.
