The inaugural issue of a new online journal, “designed to promote the academic study of religion at the graduate and undergraduate levels,” and sponsored by Utah State University, has been published, here. Articles are written by graduate and undergraduate students, with peer review provided by specialists in religion and related fields at universities throughout the United States, according to the journal’s introductory statement.

The first issue contains three articles pertaining to Mormon Studies:

Articles with other religious focus are:

  • Darren Iammarino, “Similarities Between Sethian Baptism and the Bridal Chamber of Thomas Gnosticism and Valentinianism”
