Journal of Modern and Contemporary Christianity
     topic: philosophy, anthropology and religion   history  
Aims & Scope

This open-access, peer-reviewed journal offers a space to investigate, according to the criteria of historical research, the phenomena related to Christianity and the Christian Churches from the eighteenth century to the present day. This is an age in which Christianity and the Churches are confronted with advanced modernity and the dynamics of secularisation; and during which they develop a process of progressive globalisation, which has become increasingly evident in the last century, especially in the last decades. The journal is the result of the collaboration of scholars from different countries. Published every six months, the journal will alternate between monographic issues (including call for papers) and miscellaneous issues. As an expression of its international openness and awareness of the different languages that characterise the scientific community of historians of Christianity and the Churches and its articulations, the journal will publish each year an issue entirely in English and another one with contributions in French, English, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and German.
