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).
Trajecta. Religion, Culture and Society in the Low Countries is published in two issues per year.
