Studies in Church History

Selected proceedings of the Summer and Winter conferences each year are published in the prestigious series Studies in Church History.

These volumes endeavour to explore a theme (chosen by the president for the year), providing a snapshot of current scholarship on a particular aspect of church history. Each volume comprises around thirty essays, ranging widely throughout Christian history.

Published in 2017

Studies in Church History Volume 53, Translating Christianity, appeared in June 2017. The volume was edited by Simon Ditchfield, Charlotte Methuen and Andrew Spicer. Tim Grass serves as Assistant Editor. The most recent edition available at a members’ price of £25. For an order form, which includes a list of contents, please click below.

 Please note that this is the subscription volume for 2016-17: if your subscription began between July 2016 and June 2017, you should receive this volume already and there is no need to order it.
