    "Many monastic historians in English-speaking countries will welcome the appearance of The Journal of Medieval Monastic Studies both as a venue to publish their new research and as a place for their students to discover current scholarschip on medieval monasticism in English. (...) This is an exciting undertaking that will undoubtedly open up new horizons of medieval monastic studies for English-speaking scholars and their students." (Scott Bruce, in: The Medieval Review, 13.06.05)

    "(...) a wonderful new publication that holds enormous potential for students and scholars of medieval monastic studies." (Keith Smith, in: Óenach Reviews 6.1. (2014), p. 27)


    The Journal of Medieval Monastic Studies seeks to fill a gap in current journal provision, offering a study of monasticism throughout medieval Europe. An annual publication of international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed articles on issues related to medieval monastic history, the journal will include scholarly contributions on monastic history, archaeology and architectural history, art history, literature, etc, as well as relevant book reviews and shorter notices. Great emphasis will be on interdisciplinarity and internationality. The 20 members of the editorial board include experts in history, archaeology, art history and theology, covering all of medieval Europe. The language of publication will be English, but abstracts in the original language of individual contributions may be included.
