The Research Network on Christian Churches, Culture and Society (www.ccsce.eu) is a network of individual researchers that focuses on historical research on the interaction of religion, culture and society in Europe from the second half of the 18th century until the present. CCSCE ambitions a renewed approach to religious history, implementing a broad and genuinely transnational perspective, across the whole of Europe. It aims to develop a durable and multidisciplinary research community on the subject, involving both senior and promising young scholars.
