Creationism in Europe: facts, gaps and prospects

Stefaan Blancke UGent, Hans Henrik Hjermitslev, Johan Braeckman UGent and Peter C Kjærgaard (2013) JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF RELIGION. 81(4). p.996-1028
abstract
The purpose of the paper is threefold. First, we present and discuss the extant literature on creationism in Europe (the “facts”). Within this section, we offer a review of the literature as well as an overview of the most remarkable developments and events recorded therein. Second, we indicate which material is missing from the literature (the “gaps”) and signal which gaps we think should first be filled. And third, on the basis of a forthcoming international historical study, we outline the possible factors that affect the popularity of creationism in Europe (the “prospects”). We also sketch how a sustained study of European creationism can contribute to other research domains such as the study of cultural evolution and the relation between science and religion.
