Religion is a vast territory, and it’s always nice to find fellow travelers. Even better, a guide.
With that in mind, we’re starting a new feature here at RNS called “Ask the Experts.”
The idea is, readers like you send in questions about theology, history, literature, or any topic related to religion, and we’ll contact scholars to find out the answers.
In honor of Christmas, our first edition of Ask the Experts tackles questions about the events and traditions surrounding the holy day.
Read it all.
