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.
