Welcome to Studies

Studies is a quarterly journal published by Messenger Publications, the publishing organisation of the Irish Jesuits.  Founded and in continuous publication since 1912, it examines Irish social, political, cultural and economic issues in the light of Christian values and explores the Irish dimension in literature, history, philosophy and religion.

Setting the bar characteristically high for itself, the autumn 2021 issue of Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review considers, from a number of perspectives,  the foundational substructure upon which contemporary reflective thought and opinion are based. An underlying theme is that in order to comprehend the present zeitgeist and influence that of the future, it is important to have an understanding of our collective past.
