Harvard Divinity Bulletin

Harvard Divinity Bulletin aims to provide a nonsectarian review of religion, attentive to contemporary realities, that has appeal both within and beyond the academy. The magazine is received by 20,000 people around the world, including Harvard Divinity School alumni, staff, faculty, and students, and members of the general public.

Harvard Theological Review

Harvard Theological Review, a quarterly published by Harvard Divinity School, began publication in 1908 and is one of the oldest scholarly theological journals in the United States. It publishes articles on the history and philosophy of religious thought in all traditions and periods, including Hebrew Bible, New Testament, Christianity, Jewish studies, theology, ethics, archaeology, and comparative religious studies.

Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion

Though not a publication of Harvard Divinity School, the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion was co-founded and is edited by a member of the HDS faculty and receives some administrative support from HDS. Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Krister Stendahl Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School, and Judith Plaskow, Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College, were the founding editors. The journal, which is published twice annually, in the spring and fall interdisciplinary, is the oldest interreligious feminist academic journal in religious studies.

HDS Voices

HDS professor Jocelyn Cesari
