On 27 April,
the new Central European Province (ECE) will become a reality, but common
projects of this Province are already underway. For example, there is the
creation of a journal of higher learning in philosophy and theology. Here is
how this initiative is introduced by the two Jesuits in charge: for theology
Fr. Alexander Löffler, for philosophy Fr. Bruno Niederbacher.
the beginning of March the first issue of the Zeitschrift für Theologie und
Philosophie (ZTP, Journal of Theology and Philosophy) was published in
printed form. Its digital edition has already been online since February on the
website ztp.jesuiten.org. As an
online journal with accompanying print edition, the new periodical is designed
to carry two long-standing journals - Theologie und Philosophieand
Zeitschrift für katholische Theologie - into a digital future. It is a joint venture undertaken by three institutions:
Munich School of Philosophy, Faculty for Catholic Theology at the University of
Innsbruck, and Sankt Georgen, Graduate School of Philosophy and Theology in
Frankfurt. Four times a year, ZTP will offer outstanding scholarly
essays and reviews of current specialist publications on more than 150 pages.
Even more than its two predecessors, the journal focuses on the fields of
systematic theology and systematic philosophy.
