The collection of papers in this special issue began at the conference “Violence and the Gift: Challenging Continental Philosophy of Religion,” which took place on April 25-26 2014 in Vienna, Austria. The meeting was organized by the Institute for Human Sciences (IWM) in cooperation with the University of Vienna as part of the research project “Religion beyond Myth and Enlightenment”, underwritten by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF P 23255-G19). Designed as an expert meeting to bring together renowned scholars in the field, it sought to address the meaningful potential the confluence of the topics of “the gift” and “violence” could have for continental philosophy of religion today.
