Bulletin

The English-language Bulletin, published annually in the spring, serves as the annual report of the Nanzan Institute for Religion and Culture, with lists of the events, reports of the members’ activities and academic contributions, and summaries of conferences. It also serves as a short academic journal in its own right, with articles of general interest and timely features on themes of current importance on the Japanese religious scene.

The contents of the back issues are available for downloading, arranged according to author, or may be requested directly from the Nanzan Institute.
