Logo Forschungsplattform Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society

"Religion and Transformation in Contemporary Society" brings together research on religion at the University of Vienna and makes it internationally visible.

The centre currently involves around 60 researchers from 7 faculties and 14 disciplines (Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox and Islamic theology, Jewish Studies, Islamic Studies and Religious Studies, Social Sciences, Law and Cultural Studies, Philosophy and Education).

Since the foundation in 2010, the centre explores the reciprocal relationship between religion, religiosity and transformation processes in contemporary global contexts.
