Studies in Spirituality Annual Journal

The Titus Brandsma Institute publishes an annual journal “Studies in Spirituality” which has become a crucial international voice in the study of spirituality.

The purpose of Studies in Spirituality is to publish academic and specialist articles on spirituality and mysticism, and thus promote spirituality as an academic discipline with a specific object and methodology – a discipline in continuous dialogue with other sciences that may assist in clarifying questions and problems in spirituality.

The latest edition has been published (32/2022-23) and contains the following articles:
