Concilium: International Journal for Theology
First published in 1965, Concilium has long been known for cutting-edge, critical and constructive theological thinking.
This is the home of the English language edition, published by Hymns Ancient & Modern.
Concilium features the work of theologians from five continents. It is currently published in six languages and can claim to be the most widely-read theological journal in the world.
The most important issues in theology today
Five issues are published each year, covering the following subject areas:
1. Christian Faith
2. Ethics and Lifestyle
3. Churches, Structures, Communities, Communication
4. Religions, Religious Experience, Religious Indifference, Religious Movements
5. Global Perspectives, Feminist Theology, Liberation Theology
Each issue also carries a ‘Theological Forum’, providing space for a theological reading of current events and concerns as well as shedding light on questions ignored or hidden elsewhere.
Winner of the Herbert Haag Prize
In 2015 Concilium was awarded the prestigious Herbert Haag Prize. The award was given in acknowledgement of the journal’s exceptional achievements over 50 years; analysing all major aspects of theology in the modern world, responsibly following and developing the debates of the Second Vatican Council, and advancing the spirit of the Council in the new era of intercultural theory and practice.
