Journal Description


The Journal of Ecumenical Studies, an academic journal that focuses on vitally important religious issues, offers a venue for meaningful publication, and consistently maintains the caliber of exemplary scholarship, intellectual inquisitiveness, and over-all excellence. With its outreach arm, the Institute for Intercultural, Interreligious Dialogue (IIID), the JES is at the dynamic center of a multi-faceted campaign to provide the kind of sound basis for cross-cultural understanding that can transform a potential "clash of civilizations" into a "concert of civilizations."

    "the Journal of Ecumenical Studies keeps ecumenical discussion alive for an international audience of scholars and lay-persons in a responsible and often penetrating fashion." (Religious Periodicals of the United States, Charles H. Lippy, editor, 1986)

The Journal of Ecumenical Studies has been publishing articles that explore the cutting edge of ecumenical and interreligious dialogue issues since 1964, when JES was co-founded by Arlene and Leonard Swidler .
