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.
