International Journal of Theology


Concilium is a journal for Catholic and ecumenical theological reflection. It was founded in the wake of the Second Vatican Council with the aim of understanding and applying its vision of openness to new cultural contexts and changing social and religious conditions.

The aim of Concilium is to contribute to the transformation of the world and the church in the light of the Gospel. The journal is particularly committed to criticising structures of oppression and discrimination and to theology from the perspective of the victims of social, economic and ecological inequality. It thus supports a new vision of the church beyond patriarchy, clericalism, racism, anthropocentrism, monocultural hegemony and the exploitation of natural resources.

The journal’s articles combine high academic standards with reflections on experiences that express the cultural diversity of the Christian community around the world. It is the only theological journal in which people from all continents have a voice. Concilium is published by a group of around twenty theologians from all parts of the world. It is published five times a year by Karl Alber Verlag.
