Scope & Purpose:
The Journal of Salesian studies is an academic publication covering topics primarily related to the Salesian tradition of Saint John Bosco, including its connection to the wider Salesian tradition relating to Saint Francis de Sales. In order to progress the Salesian mission, and to properly understand and discern the call of Salesian discipleship, many articles take on a historical perspective, and to delve into the origins of the Salesian charism, spirit, educational style, and its historical application through time. These historically-based articles are designed to encourage the critical reflection of the reader, and to draw connections to its current application. However, many articles make more of an immediate practical application.
The Journal of Salesian Studies, therefore, welcomes proposals and contributions that bring to the fore any of the following subjects:
- Education and Evangelization of youth
- Don Bosco‘ s Charism and Method
- Timely and pertinent topics relating to Salesian work in today’s world
- Historical research in topics relating to the growth and development of the Salesian Society
- Profiles of personalities who have made a notable contribution in Salesian history, such as Mother Mary Mazzarello
- Francis de Sales’ charism, spirit, and historical influences, as well as related persons and topics such as Jane de Chantal and the Visitation Order
- Book reviews of publications that are either explicitly Salesian, or publications which may be of interest to those involved in the education and evangelization of youth
Article proposals may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org
