The new online journal exploring aspects of reception history and religion, Relegere, has been launched. Congratulations to the editors on getting the project to this stage, for a provocative and suggestive editorial, and for securing what looks to be a clear and attractive online presence for the journal itself.
The TOC for the first issue is as follows. There is also an extensive review section. Instructions for contributors and books available for review can also be found on the home page. I wish the journal every success and would encourage anyone interested in the theory and practice of reception history to take a look.
