The European Journal for the Study of Thomas Aquinas (EJSTA) publishes academic contributions studying the work of Thomas Aquinas. It is a continuation (now open access and online-only, peer reviewed, no fee from the author required) of the Jaarboek of the Thomas Instituut Utrecht (Tilburg University, The Netherlands, published since 1981), and appears annually. The EJSTA is a joint initiative of the Faculty of Theology of Nicolaus Copernicus University of Toruń (PL), the Saint Thomas Aquinas Institute for Theology and Culture of the Faculty of Theology (ISTAC) of the University of Fribourg (CH), and the aforementioned Thomas Instituut Utrecht (NL). At all three institutions a form of Thomist ressourcement is taking place, with emphasis on the distinctly theological character of Aquinas’ works, including his Biblical commentaries. The EJSTA welcomes all scholarly contributions (written either in English, German, French, Spanish or Italian) that are directly or indirectly related to the study of Thomas Aquinas. Its aim is to disseminate the ongoing research done at its founding institutions as well as to provide a platform for other scholars in the field. Publications in the journal are of high academic quality and either advance or accurately evaluate present debates in the study of Aquinas. EJSTA includes reviews of books relevant to this mission.
