In this chapter, we seek to begin a conversation about religion and gender in childhood by briefly outlining some of the main theoretical contributions that can underscore our thinking about the interrelations between religion, gender and childhood within a mainly European and North American context. We argue that through researching childhood in relation to gender and religion, we can advance our knowledge and understanding of the processes of formation and negotiation of both gendered and religious identities.
