Waco (Texas), 4-7 June 2014

June 4-7, Baylor's the Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR) will be hosting a group of scholars from around the world at the annual meeting of the Center for Studies on New Religions (CESNUR), based in Turino, Itlay. The faculty and staff of ISR will be rolling out the red carpet for our guests who will be arriving from across North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia, and you are invited to join us a round of papers on the many new religious movements that are remaking the 21st century landscape.

Papers will present a wide spectrum of observation on the very diverse world of new religious movements but begin with a look at the â€Ĺ“The Uniquely Texan Religions of the Lone State State and â€Ĺ“Christianity and the Future of Religions in China." The complete program is posted at CESNUR's website http://www.cesnur.org/conferenze.htm

The conference will be free for attendees, though there will be a modest charge for meals and the field trips on Saturday afternoon. We will establish a form for registration soon on the ISR website. Watch for further communication from us.

The conference will begin on Wednesday evening with a reception and opening session, introducing Waco and Texas history of new religions which reaches back to Sam Houston and the founders of the Texas Republic. Did you know that Houston corresponded with Joseph Smith, Jr., on the relocation of the Saints to the Republic?

Conference sessions will run through the day on Thursday and Friday, through Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon will be a time for a local tour, which will focus on the Homestead Heritage community north of Waco, and will also provide for an optional visit to the Branch Davidian site.
