Religious persecution is a phenomenon experienced by many adherents of various religions worldwide. In some contexts it is not outright persecution, but believers face serious challenges to the free exercise of religion. A common theme that unites most articles of this issue of IJRF is the encountering of persecution. What precisely are the challenges that believers, and particularly Christians, face in various contexts? How do they cope with it? How do they react? Which role do theological interpretations play? Another question connected to the documentation of persecution is how it can be measured, and whether trans-national comparisons are possible.
