"Chrétiens et Sociétés XVIe-XXIe siècles", is a journal of history of the religions in the early modern and modern eras. It is centered on the study of the various Christian confessions but remains open to other religion and is in constant dialogue with the other sectors of the social sciences. The first issue was published in 1994. Founded under the auspices of the André Latreille Center (Lyon 2 university) and of the Institute of History of Christianity (Lyon 3 university), it is today produced by the researchers in religious history of the Rhône-Alpes’ historical Research Laboratory called LARHRA (UMR 5190). Whereas the first issues especially reported centers’ activities, over the years, the number of papers increased and the authors come from diverse background. Today it alternates thematic issues and varia, as well as publishing special issues on specific topics. It is endowed with an international reading committee.
