Academic Studies Press is pleased to announce an open call for manuscript submissions for its new book series, Global Catholicism, edited by Massimo Faggioli (Villanova University) and Bryan Froehle (St. Thomas University).

Conceived as an area of study within the broader context of World Christianity, this series builds on cultural, historical, and social scientific approaches to study expressions of Catholicism around the world. We welcome an interdisciplinary approach that engages theology, especially ecclesiology, practical theology, and missiology. We especially seek writing projects that promote or encompass research that cross-cuts what had formerly been segments or isolated categories and fields. Of particular interest are comparative theology and congregational studies, as well as method and methodology. We hope to foster the comparative theological, historical, and social scientific study of religious pluralism across world religions, world Christianity, and world Catholicism in all its diversity.

Series Mission: The series aims to publish works of critical interest in the emerging field of Global Catholicism. These publications will generally be interdisciplinary and incorporate a range of historical, social, and theological perspectives.

Series Vision: To spark development within an emerging field by creating a scholarly venue for new work initiated by a text that traces out a vision for future work.
