The Finnish Society for Hymnology and Liturgy organised an international conference with the title "Encounters at Borders and across Borders" in May 2022. All of the articles of this volume are based on the presentations held at the conference. Themes within hymnology and liturgy are addressed following the heading, through encounters at borders and crossing them. Borders that are addressed in peer-reviewed articles are: (1) borders between churches, (2) borders of religions or cultures, (3) geographical, regional, and linguistic borders, (4) borders between academic disciplines, (5) borders of hymn, spiritual song, and liturgy, (6) mental and bodily borders, as well as (7) borders set by the Covid-19 pandemic.
