Ökumenisches Forum – Journal for Ecumenical and Patristic Studies is published once a year and contains the following sections:

Proceedings and conference reports

Included here are all proceedings from the so-called Graz Process which was also partly initiated by our institute and other events with a current emphasis on ecumenism in Austria although other contributions are welcome.


This section contains English or German language lectures concerning ecumenical theology, church fathers and mothers and the Early Church.


From volume 37 on, the journal will also publish peer-reviewed papers in English or German together with abstracts in the opposite language. If you are interested in submitting a paper, please consult our Call for Papers.

Reviews and academic qualification papers

This section contains book reviews and – sometimes condensed – academic qualification papers. They are reviewed by the editorial board, but not subject to a full peer review.
