Centre for Religion and Heritage
Welcome to the Centre of Religion and Heritage. The Centre was established to promote scholarly exchange, train future professionals, advise external stakeholders and engage in public outreach work in this topical and highly contested field. Its projects and events provide a resource for scholars and students, heritage organizations and government, as well as anyone interested in the connection of religion and heritage.
The CRH is the successor of the Institute for Christian Cultural Heritage, which has contributed to heritage work in the Netherlands over many years. Building on a longterm engagement with Christian heritage, the Centre draws on the research strengths of affiliated staff in ancient, Islamic, Jewish and Buddhist religious history as well as in theoretical investigations of the secularism and the post-secular.
