Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics: Call for Contributors
The editors of The Encyclopedia of Modern Christian Politics (1789-present) are seeking contributors to write on a variety of topics that illuminate the ways that Christianity has shaped the political commitments of leaders on a global scale. This two-volume reference work is scheduled to be published by Greenwood Publishing Group in 2004. Contributors receive a copy of the completed work, as well as full credit at the end of each essay and in the introductory material.
Our goal is to produce an encyclopedia that adequately reveals the scope and evolving character of Christianity's diverse political voices during the last two centuries, the time when political revolutions compelled the churches to come to terms with modernity. This broad sampling of Christian engagement with the political world should add significantly to our understanding of how religion remained politically influential even as Western nations dissolved longstanding connections between church and state. At present, the West is examining the complexity of church-state relations in the Islamic world with an unprecedented sense of urgency. This work will offer a useful starting point for comparing experiences and strategies on both sides of one of the world's great religious divides.
Established scholars and advanced doctoral candidates are invited to send a letter of inquiry to either Mark Y. Hanley (U.S. entries) or Roy P. Domenico (non-U.S.). We will be happy to send lists of unassigned topics, a detailed description of the project, editorial guidelines, and deadline information. Feel free to use any of the contact options included with this announcement.
