Research concerning religion and entrepreneurship has greatly increased over the last years and is scattered across various academic disciplines and fields. To provide an overview, we conduct a systematic literature search leading to a descriptive overview of the field based on 270 articles published in 163 journals. We identify and characterize the most important publications, journals, and authors in the field and map the analyzed religions and regions. Then, we perform a bibliometric analysis to structure the field and identify thematic clusters and author and journal interconnections and networks. Our study provides a better understanding of the field of religion and entrepreneurship research and, based on these results, outlines avenues for future research.
