Reender Kranenborg (born 1942) was an editor of the magazine Religious Movement in the Netherlands published by the institute of religious studies of the Free University in Amsterdam.[1]

He received his Phd. in the theological faculty about the subject of Self-realization. He stated in the dissertation that he had attempted to research the subject following the norms of religious studies, not a theological one.[2]

He had, until his retirement, a seat at the Comitato Scientifico (scientific committee) of the CESNUR.[3]
