Short Description

The past of Annals of Church History goes back to the 50s of the twentieth century when The Scientific Society of the Catholic University of Lublin initiated publishing of specialist journals representing intellectual activity of individual university departments. It was how the yearbook called Theological Annals started at first. Every year its Issue No 4 was dedicated to Church history. Professors of the Institute of Church History were entrusted with the responsibility for its content. Articles posted in the issue dealt with widely understood history of the Church since antiquity to the present. The journal has become over time an important platform of historical thought exchange for main scientific centres in Poland. Since 2009 the individual issues of Theological Annals have been altered to stand-alone titles with their original ISSN and the anew counted numbers of volumes. It should be noticed though that the next volume of each title has also a parallel continuous numbering which refers to the previous title. Former Theological Annals Issue No 4. History of the Church changed its title to Annals of Church History. Starting with the very first volume its content has been divided in three sections: Articles, Sources and Materials, and Reviews. As far as the articles published in the first section they show in the wide historical context numerous aspects of the Church’s presence both in the world and in Poland. There are many eminent Polish historians among the authors as well as ones from abroad e.g. USA and Papua New Guinea. In the second section i.e. Sources and Materials readers can be easily acquainted with critical editions of original texts documenting important events of the history of the Church. The second section is where educational and scientific activity of Professors of the Institute of Church History is presented, too. Among others it’s carried by contributing to the development of historians’ environment: one can find there lists of M.A. theses, summaries of Ph.D. dissertations and tables of their contents. A valuable addition to the journal is its third part which contains reviews of important Church history publications.
