520    What is "Religious Studies" and what is its future in 
       Atlantic Canada? How have universities founded by Roman 
       Catholic and Protestant denominations, and public 
       universities, differed as they approached the study of 
       religious life and traditions?     Religious Studies in 
       Atlantic Canada surveys the history and place of the study
       of religion within Canadian universities. Following a 
       historical introduction to the public and denominationally
       founded universities in the Atlantic region, the book 
       situates the departments of religious studies in relation 
       to the distinctive characteristics of the various 
       universities in the region, focusing on curriculum, 
       research and teaching.     Bowlby examines the current 
       strengths of the religious studies departments in Atlantic
       Canada, and where those departments are fragile, i.e., 
       where departments have thrived because of careful long-
       term planning, as well as where crises of retirements have
       radically affected the size and strength of departments. 
       In conclusion Bowlby suggests strategies for future 
       survival and growth in the field of religious studies.    
       Religious Studies in Atlantic Canada is the last of a six-
       part series on the state of the art of religious studies 
       in Canada, a unique account of the regional differences in
       the development of religious studies in Canada. Written 
       for anyone interested in the teaching of religion as well 
       as the specialist, the book provides an introduction and 
       an overview of religious studies curricula, faculty 
       research, and teaching areas at the region's universities
