Journal of Catholic Theology

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The magazine for Catholic theology was founded in 1877 by professors from the Catholic theological faculty of the University of Innsbruck . Since then it has been published by scholars who belong to the Society of Jesus as a publication organ for research articles and reviews in the fields of theology and philosophy. It appears as a quarterly publication by Echter Verlag .

The aim of the magazine for Catholic theology is to report on ongoing theological discussions and to stimulate them with ecumenical openness. She is particularly committed to the spirit of the Second Vatican Council , as she prepared and shaped its debates in numerous contributions.

Renowned theologians such as the Luther researcher Hartmann Grisar , the liturgical scholar Josef Andreas Jungmann , the brothers Hugo and Karl Rahner and the liturgical scholars Hans Bernhard Meyer and Rudolf Pacik shaped the magazine's program as editors . The current editor is Georg Gasser.

The journal for Catholic theology is one of the oldest scientific and theological journals in the world. It is common in more than 45 countries on all continents.

The ZKTh will be continued from January 2021 together with the journal Theologie und Philosophie in the format of an online specialist journal under the title Journal for Theology and Philosophy .
