The Italian Society for the History of religions – Società Italiana di Storia delle Religioni – in cooperation with the University of Pisa, is glad and honoured to host the EASR Conference in 2021, in a Mediterranean country, in ideal continuity with the previously hosted IAHR and EASR Conferences of Rome (1990) and Messina (2009) respectively.

At the University of Pisa, the History of Religion chair is hosted in the Dipartimento di Civiltà e Forme del Sapere, Università di Pisa, a department characterized by a strong interdisciplinary perspective and by research interests that diachronically span from antiquity to the contemporary age. The main areas of interest are History and Philosophy, together with Archaeology and Aart History.
