Selected proceedings of the Summer and Winter conferences each year are published in the prestigious series Studies in Church History. Past titles include:

  • The Church and the Arts
  • Christianity and Judaism
  • Unity and Diversity in the Church
  • Retribution, Repentance, and Reconciliation
  • Discipline and Diversity
  • Revival and Resurgence in Christian History
  • The Church, the Afterlife and the Fate of the Soul
  • God's Bounty: The Churches and the Natural World
  • Saints and Sanctity
  • The Church and Literature
  • The Church on its Past

These volumes endeavour to explore a theme (chosen by the president for the year), providing a snapshot of current scholarship on a particular aspect of church history. Essays may focus on issues of detail, or take a broad perspective. They should be a helpful starting point for the student approaching particular issues in the history of Christianity, and are often of interest to those working in other disciplines. Each volume comprises around thirty essays, ranging widely throughout Christian history.

A companion series, Studies in Church History, Subsidia, includes Festschriften and proceedings from other conferences. Volumes available include:

  • Life and Thought in the Northern Church
  • Missions and Missionaries
  • International Religious Networks

Both series are normally available at a discounted price to EHS members. Subscribing members for the academic year 2013-14 should have received Religion and the Household automatically as their subscription volume. If your copy has not arrived, please contact the Assistant Editor, Dr Tim Grass,
