Institute for the Study of Religions in Krakow

Established in 1974, the Institute for the Study of Religions Studies is the oldest academic institution in Poland offering complete degree programmes in religious studies, and the country's leading research unit on the religions of the world.
Spread across seven departments and one laboratory, the academic staff of the Institute conduct research in all sub-disciplines of religious studies (history, anthropology, phenomenology, psychology and sociology of religion).

This year we are the celebrating the Institute's 40th year.

The Institute works together with many universities and research facilities from EU countries, the USA and Eastern Europe. We organise international conferences, symposiums, plenary lectures and workshops for academics, students and people interested in the world's religions.
At present the Institute is located in the Collegium Broscianum building at 52 Grodzka Str. in Krakow's Old Town.
