Brill now publishes Catholic Christendom, 1300-1700 and St Andrews Studies in Reformation History

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 25 October 2016

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, further expands its portfolio in Early Modern History with the book series Catholic Christendom, 1300-1700 (CAC, and St Andrews Studies in Reformation History (SASRH,, both formerly published by Ashgate. Books in both series will become available in print and online.

Giorgio Caravale, Ralph Keen, and J. Christopher Warner, the Editors of Catholic Christendom, 1300-1700 commented: "When Catholic Christendom, 1300-1700 required a new publisher, we saw that Brill was clearly the best home for the series. The international and multi-disciplinary scope of Catholic Christendom aligns perfectly with Brill's history and mission as an academic press: it both complements and is complemented by Brill's other book series devoted to the medieval, Renaissance, and Reformation periods."

Andrew Pettegree, Editor of St Andrews Studies in Reformation History, commented: “St Andrews Studies in Reformation History is one of the longest established series in the field, with over 120 published volumes since its foundation in 1996. When it became clear that it required a new home, the editorial board was delighted to accept an invitation to move to Brill. Brill already has a proud heritage and extended publishing list in this area of scholarship. Now, together with the existing Brill series Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions and Studies in the History of Christian Tradition, as well as with Catholic Christendom 1300-1700, it will have a commanding presence in the field of early modern religion. It is a great pleasure to welcome already our first volume in Brill livery, and to look forward (with more than 20 further volumes already under contract) to many more.”

Arjan van Dijk, Brill’s Acquisition Editor commented: “We are very pleased that the editors of St Andrews Studies in Reformation History and Catholic Christendom, 1300-1700 chose Brill as their new publisher. Both series strengthen Brill’s list in early modern history and complement existing series and journals in the Brill program, such as Brill’s Companions to the Christian Tradition and the Jesuit Studies book series. We look forward to working with the editorial teams and to further developing these already highly respected book series.”
