Publications

The original gift that helped to found the Center for the Study of World Religions encouraged support of research and publications. Since then, the CSWR has published the results of research by scholars affiliated with the CSWR; books by nonaffiliated scholars whose work the Center has considered within its mission to support; and books and papers emerging from conferences and symposia held at the Center. Currently, the CSWR does not publish external manuscripts but issues occasional volumes deriving directly from its work. Permissions to use CSWR material should be addressed to Charles Anderson at canderson@hds.harvard.edu.
