FSCIRE, the Emilia-Romagna Region, and the European Academy of Religion are glad to announce the third edition of the Giuseppe Alberigo Award.


Giuseppe Alberigo (1927-2007) was a historian of great magnitude who combined exceptional and exemplary rigour in research and unique timeliness in the intellectual and theological debate of his time, thereby offering a precious contribution to sowing the seeds of criticism in generations of scholars internationally.


In memory of his fervour and wealth of critical studies, the Region of Emilia-Romagna and FSCIRE, to which Alberigo dedicated 54 years of his life, will confer a sum of € 11,000 (Senior Award, € 7,000; Junior Award € 4,000), which will reward scholars engaged in any field of religious science, whether historical, exegetical, theological or other.

Candidacies must be presented by the authors themselves and/or third parties – scholars, centres, journals, editors, associations, academies or departments – provided that they are registered members of the EuARe, by sending a paper or digital copy of their books published within the last three years, or works that have yet to be published, in any field of religious science. Every candidacy must be accompanied by a brief presentation of the particular aspects of the volume, the curriculum vitae of its author(s) and the indication of the category of the Award applied for.


Candidacies will be received until March 4, 2022.

The prize will be awarded during the next Annual Conference of the European Academy of Religion (June 20-23, 2022), where the three finalists in each category will also be invited to present their works.
