Journal Pantheon

Mission Statement

Founded in 2006, Pantheon is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal focused on the academic study of religions. Its main aim is to create a platform for scholarly exchange not only within the Czech Republic, but internationally, and to promote research and international discussion of scholars from countries where the study of religions as a discipline plays an important role among the humanities.

The journal structure consists of articles, news and reports and book reviews. All articles are peer-reviewed usually twice and the process is double blind. The peer-reviewers are specialists in the field from various universities and academic institutions from the Czech Republic and abroad, and majority consists of external academic peers. Since 2009 the journal is issued twice a year, and since 2011 one issue has articles in English and the other in Czech, or some other Slavic languages (Polish and Slovak).
