Forthcoming Series: Studies in Global Catholicism


Editors-in-Chief: Massimo Faggioli, Villanova University, Radnor, Pennsylvania, USA, and Bryan T. Froehle, Palm Beach Atlantic University, West Palm Beach, Florida

The current pontificate of the Argentina-born Francis reflects contemporary Catholicism’s transition toward the “world Church”, as it was envisioned by Karl Rahner at the Second Vatican Council. Studies in Global Catholicism is a new research platform that addresses this transition and seeks to contextually ground contemporary experience and developments across the world’s largest ecclesial institution.

The volumes in the series will shed light on the diversity of Catholicism as it develops in a globalizing world. The studies aim to advance the understanding of local Catholic expressions and concerns in a global perspective by engaging cultural, historical, and social scientific approaches, including method and methodology, and exploring the impact of local languages and practices for global theological and ecclesiological conversations.

We welcome scholarship from a variety of disciplines including anthropology, politics, history, religious studies, art and literature. Thus we expect to advance renewal in Catholic theology – from fundamental and systematic theology to practical theology, including canon law, ethics and comparative theology.

For inquiries about the series, please feel free to contact the Editors-in-Chief, Massimo Faggioli or Bryan Froehle. Proposals can be directed at Brill’s Acquisitions Editor for Theology and World Christianity, Tessel Jonquière.
