Submission Format: Augustinian Studies is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal devoted to the study of the life, teachings, and influence of Augustine of Hippo. Since 1970 it has published articles from a variety of disciplines and perspectives including philosophy, theology, and history. It also published article-length reviews of appropriate publications as well as the annual Saint Augustine Lecture delivered at Villanova University. Although the primary focus of the journal is the study of Augustine himself, articles illuminating aspects of Augustinian studies more broadly conceived are also included when they contribute to the understanding of Augustine’s life or thought.

Manuscripts for Augustinian Studies should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. For the works of Augustine, Augustinian Studies employs the abbreviation system of the Augustinus-Lexikon. We kindly request that the full Latin title of any work by Augustine be supplied the first time that it occurs in the text of the article and that the A-L system be employed in both the text and the footnotes thereafter. The exceptions to this are references that occur in the titles of the article and/or in the subheadings. Full titles should always be used in both places. Whenever translations of citations from Latin authors are employed, please also supply the original language in the same footnote in which the citation location is given. For a complete set of guidelines, abbreviations, and conventions followed by Augustinian Studies, please see the “Submission Guidelines” link at the following web address: Articles are to be submitted via an electronic copy in Word .doc or Word .docx format to
