Studia Historiae Ecclesiasticae


Studia Historiae Ecclesiasticae (SHE) is the subject journal of the Church History Society of Southern Africa. It is an accredited journal and is published three times a year. It has a proud publishing record of 35 years. It carries articles of academic excellence on issues pertaining to church history, with a special focus on Southern Africa. Some of the most exciting church history in the world is being made every day in Southern Africa, with the churches contributing actively to the political, economic and social development of the area. The journal is a must for libraries that cater for researchers on African and Southern African church history. These include university libraries both locally and abroad, many of which already subscribe to SHE. If your library is not amongst the subscribers, we would urge you to do this without delay for the benefit of your researchers. Furthermore, the journal is of great value to subject specialists who are invited to subscribe privately to this unique source of research information. Also the lay reader, who is interested in church history, will find SHE enjoyable reading, and is encouraged to subscribe. The journal is attractive in appearance and is published painstakingly on time in May, August and November of each year. Every issue contains approximately 15 articles, with a similar number of book reviews. You are cordially invited to join in the success of this journal, both on behalf of your institution and for your private library. Permission for archiving in Unisa Insitutional Repository has been granted by the editor of this journal.
