The RSP was launched in 2012 by Christopher R. Cotter (The Open University) and David G. Robertson (The Open University) to bring contemporary issues in RS to a wider audience and provide a resource for undergraduate students of RS, their teachers, and interested members of the public.
Their aim was to provide engaging, concise, and reliable accounts of the most important concepts, traditions, scholars and methodologies in the contemporary study of religion, without pushing a religious or nonreligious agenda or resorting to presenting “fact files” about “World Religions”.
In 2019, Chris and David ushered in a new era of the RSP in welcoming Breann Fallon and David McConeghy as the new Managing Editors of the RSP and moving into their new roles as Co-Editors-in-Chief. In 2021, Breann stepped down from her position—though she remains an integral part of the RSP team—and Andie Alexander joined the ranks of co-editors alongside Dave. We are so very grateful for Bre’s work and leadership during her time as co-editor.
We are eternally grateful for the support of dozens of staff members and hundreds of contributors, and would like to acknowledge the hard work of our former editorial team members:
The Religious Studies Project is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organization (SCIO) devoted to producing engaging and accessible resources for the contemporary study of religion.
In September 2017, The Religious Studies Project Association (the organisation behind the scenes at the RSP) became The Religious Studies Project Association [SCIO]. This meant the production of a constitution, the appointment of trustees, and a whole lot more.
A pdf version of the constitution of The Religious Studies Project Association [SCIO] is available.
The trustees of the SCIO are:
