Centre for Research on Religion (CREOR)


The principal goal of the Centre for Research on Religion / Centre de Recherche sur la Religion (CREOR) is to study the world's religions in their constantly changing historical manifestations. The Centre's aim is to create a broad academic platform to coordinate and support research on the identities of the main religions of the world, their differences and their common grounds, and how they contribute to a better understanding of past and present-day culture, ethics and politics.
