Religions of South Asia is a development of the work of the Spalding Symposium on Indian Religions which has been meeting (in recent years in Oxford) since the mid 1970s and is supported by the Spalding Trust. For a number of years papers from the Symposia were published as annuals but from 2007 they form part of the contents of a new, peer-reviewed journal which appears bi-annually. ROSA publishes papers by internationally respected scholars on some of the most vibrant and dynamic religious traditions of the world. It includes the latest research on distinctively South Asian or Indic religions - Hindu, Jaina, Buddhist and Sikh - religions which continue to influence the patterns of thought and ways of life of millions of people. These are traditions which are integral not only to the development of the cultural identities of India and South Asia, but to those of many diaspora communities globally. The Journal also includes papers on those religions originating from outside the sub-continent - Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Zoroastrian traditions and newly emerging religions like the Baha'i tradition, which are developing a significant presence in South Asia. Papers are particularly welcomed that discuss the confluence of religious cultures and inter-cultural encounters.
