The Religious Studies Center is the research and publishing arm of Religious Education at Brigham Young University. It was established in 1975 under the direction of Dean Jeffrey R. Holland. Watch a video of Elder Holland and others describing the history of the RSC.
Our mission is to encourage, sponsor, and publish serious, faithful, gospel-related materials. We encourage authors to submit their research for publication. We publish and market high-quality religious books and periodicals of both an academic and devotional nature.
Our goal is to promote greater understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and its importance in the lives of Latter-day Saints.
We have published groundbreaking works on Latter-day Saint culture and history as well as in-depth studies dealing with scripture and doctrine.
