Abstract

CHRONICLE The British Association for the History of Religions held its annual meeting at Oxford, i r-i3 September, 1978. An account of the pro- ceedings is given in the Bulletin of the British member group. A significant feature of the annual "business meeting" was the discussion of the problem of the annual conferences of national groups in years of international congresses. This is a question to which also other national groups might give some thought. The Japanese Society for the Study of Religions held its annual meeting 3-5 November, 1978, at Kokugakuin University in Tokyo. Almost one thousand scholars attended and about three hundred papers were read in fields ranging from theology and philosophy, to folklore, sociology and anthropology, to the more traditional historico-philologi- cal study of religions. The CISR (Congres International de Sociologie des Religions) held a special meeting in Tokyo, 27-29 December, 1978. A number of eminent sociologists of religion from abroad attended to discuss "secularization" and "modernization" in religion with their Japanese colleagues, against the background of a modernised non-western civili- zation. Special attention and much discussion were devoted to the so- called "New Religions" of Japan, and the conference was followed by visits to
