Annali di Scienze Religiose is a periodical stemming from the research activities of the Department of Religious Science at the Università Cattolica di Milano (Catholic University of the Sacred Heart in Milan) which apply a multidisciplinary approach to religious phenomena and focus particular attention on the three monotheistic religions and religions of the ancient Mediterranean world. It features contributions from Italian and foreign scholars writing in the main European languages and Arabic. Each issue is subdivided into a monographic section which gives its name to the subtitle of the issue, a section on conferences with texts that employ a scientific approach in dealing with a wide range of historical and comparative topics, and lastly, a section regarding studies presenting timely contributions on specific themes. Every issue ends with the Ambrosian Bibliography, an annual survey of publications regarding the person and works of Ambrose of Milan.

La rivista nasce dalle attività di ricerca del Dipartimento di Scienze religiose dell’Università Cattolica di Milano, secondo un approccio multidisciplinare al fenomeno religioso, con particolare attenzione ai tre monoteismi e alle religioni del mondo mediterraneo antico. Ospita contributi di studiosi italiani e stranieri nelle principali lingue europee ed in arabo, suddivisi in una sezione monografica che determina il sottotitolo del fascicolo, una sezione di conferenze, con testi che affrontano con approccio scientifico temi di ampio respiro storico o comparativo, e infine una sezione di studi che presentano contributi puntuali su temi specifici. Conclude ogni fascicolo la bibliografia ambrosiana, rassegna annuale delle pubblicazioni relative alla figura e alle opere di Ambrogio di Milano.
