European Journal for the Study of Thomas Aquinas

Ever since 1981 the Thomas Institute publishes a yearly book of studies related to the work and influence of Thomas Aquinas: the Jaarboek. The last volume appeared in 2018. The volumes of the Jaarboek Thomas Instituut te Utrecht are here available as pfd-files, see the menu on the left. The volumes are grouped from 1981 to 2000 and from 2001 to 2017.

In 2019 the Jaarboek was continued as an open access journal, published yearly: the European Journal for the Study of Thomas Aquinas (EJSTA).  The European Journal for the Study of Thomas Aquinas  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), 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. You can contact the editorial board at
