Twentieth Century Religious Thought – Trial ended 12 April 2013

Twentieth Century Religious Thought will be a multivolume, cross-searchable online collection that brings together the seminal works and archival materials related to key worldwide religious thinkers from the early 1900s until the turn of the 21st century.
It will cover the major strains and new directions in religious questioning that have often altered the very framework of given traditions. In addition to studying scholars’ ideas separately, researchers will be able to explore broader schools of thought to examine how different theories, denominations, faiths, and political and cultural groups have intersected, differed, and influenced one another. Central topics in Volume I will include Protestantism, Catholicism, Evangelicalism, Lutheranism, liberation theology, systematic theology, dialectical theology, and theocentric theology.
