Spiritus covers a wide range of disciplines within the field of religious studies: history, philosophy, theology, and psychology. Ecumenical in its approach, Spiritus explores the connections between spirituality and cultural analysis -- including literary and artistic expression, social activism, and spiritual practice. Filled with lively insightful articles, reviews, and new translations of important texts, Spiritus appeals not only to scholars and academics, but also to general readers such as pastors, practitioners, and those in the helping professions. The journal's goal is to promote research in the field of Christian spirituality while fostering creative dialogue with other non-Christian traditions. Spiritus is sponsored by the Society for the Study of Christian Spirituality (SSCS).
