Centre for the Study of Religion

Religion is everywhere. Knowledge of religion is essential for anyone who wants to understand the world. Leiden University Centre for the Study of Religion (LUCSoR) studies religion as human activity, in all its diversity.

Our research brings together expertise in specific religions with a comparative approach that draws on a variety of humanistic and social scientific disciplines. In an open discussion and with a fresh pair of eyes LUCSoR strives to understand religion in a changing world.
