About TS

Theological Studies is a quarterly journal of theology, published under the auspices of the Jesuits in the USA. It has been in continuous publication since 1940.

Mission Statement

Founded and sponsored by the Society of Jesus in the United States of America, Theological Studies is a Catholic scholarly journal that serves the Church and its mission by promoting a deeper understanding of the Christian faith through the publication of research in theological disciples. Through refereed articles and reviews of noteworthy books, the journal aims to recover and to help make accessible the riches of the theological tradition, and to present significant developments in current theology. It is published quarterly in English for an international readership.

Located at Santa Clara University, in Santa Clara, California, TS is under the general editorship of Paul G. Crowley, SJ. The book review editor is R. Daniel Kendall, SJ, of the University of San Francisco.
