Journal of Church & State

JCS Header

The Journal of Church & State takes as its concern what has been called the "greatest subject in the history of the West." Now in its 53rd year of publication, the Journal seeks to stimulate interest, dialogue, research, and publication in the broad area of religion and the state. JCS publishes constitutional, historical, philosophical, theological, and sociological studies on religion and the body politic in various countries and cultures of the world, including the United States. Each issue features six or more research articles and twenty-five to thirty reviews of significant books in the field, including those published in foreign languages. Periodically, important ecclesiastical documents and government texts of legislation and/or court decisions are also published. Regular features include "Notes on Church-State Affairs", which reports current developments throughout the world, and a list of "Recent Doctoral Dissertations in Church and State."

The Journal is published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the J. M. Dawson Institute of Church-State Studies. Information on subscriptions, submissions, and author guidelines is available from the Oxford University Press website at:
