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.
Between Disruption and Encounter
Global Catholicism: Between Disruption and Encounter opens the Studies in Global Catholicism series with an examination of a worldwide religious institution that up to now has been more globally extensive than truly globalized. It explores the world historical and theological meaning of de-Europeanization with church data by world region. Readers get an in-depth look at the institutional and theological capacity and limits of the cosmopolitan reality of today’s Catholic Church. Its integrated perspective, grounded in cultural and political history together with an ecclesiology of post-Vatican II Catholicism, offers a new way to approach today’s emerging post-colonial, inter-cultural Global Catholicism as centuries-old trajectories are disrupted and pressing new realities demand original responses.
