Religion, Culture and Society in the Low Countries

Aims & Scope

Trajecta. Religion, Culture and Society in the Low Countries publishes peer reviewed articles on the historical dynamics between religion, culture and society in the Low Countries (Belgium and the Netherlands), and the related heritage. The journal pays attention to all confessional and religious traditions that played a role in the Low Countries and its (post-)colonial history and heritage. From 2019 onwards Trajecta focuses on the modern history of religion (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, ‘new’ religions) and the accompanying processes of transformation.

Trajecta is published in cooperation with KADOC-KU Leuven, Documentation and Research Centre on Religion, Culture and Society, HDC Centre for Religious History at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Catholic Documentation Centre at the Radboud University Nijmegen (KDC) and the Archives and Documentation Centre of the Reformed Churches in the Netherlands at the Theological University Kampen (ADC).

Peer Review Process

Articles on the modern history and heritage of religion, culture and society in the Low Countries can be submitted for publication to the editorial secretary (maximum 7,000 words excl. footnotes). Contributions should preferably be in English; Dutch contributions are also accepted. See the authors’ instructions for more information.
Manuscripts are double-blind peer reviewed by two reviewers. Trajecta aims to be an accessible journal for both an academic and a non-academic public. Every manuscript is assessed for its academic quality as well as its readability for a broader public. Illustrations contribute to a visual attractive publication.

Before submitting an article for review, please download and read the Instructions for Authors.
