  • Passing of Professor Kurt Rudolf

    It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Professor Kurt Rudolf, an Honorary Life Member of the IAHR, on May 13, shortly after celebrating his 91st birthday. Professor Rudolf greatly contributed to the IAHR through, above all, his critical reflections upon the methodology and the nature of the study of religions. An obituary will appear in NVMEN soon. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family.
