A journal of academic theology

Editor's Note

In Memoriam: John O’Malley, SJ, on Vatican II and Ecclesiology

In the wake of the passing of John W. O’Malley, SJ, one of the greatest church historians of our time, the journal invited Massimo Faggioli to reflect on O’Malley’s contribution to contemporary theology. Analyzing his major works on Vatican II and ecclesiology—in particular, What Happened at Vatican II—Faggioli argues that O’Malley perceived a new phase in the history of the hermeneutics of the council and responded with a historicization of the conciliar tradition between Trent and Vatican I.

In Memoriam: Paul G. Crowley, S.J.

The Editors and Board Directors of Theological Studies remember with deep gratitude and reverence our Jesuit colleague, Paul Crowley, who died on August 7th after a long bout with cancer. He served as editor in chief of Theological Studies from January 1, 2016 until poor health required him to hand the reins of the journal to our interim editor, Phil Rossi, in September of 2019.
