Ad fontes, “to the sources,” was a rallying cry of the Reformation. The Reformers bequeathed to us a heritage, rooted in the Scriptures and their wide-ranging humanistic studies, which sought to address the hard questions of theology, philosophy, and culture in a way that was true to the revelation of God’s word and God’s world. Through this journal, we aim to channel this ethos into a modern context, seeking to explore our questions alongside the great cloud of witnesses and the many exemplars who have gone before us. The goal is to aid ourselves and our neighbors in the wise pursuit of common goods.
Ad Fontes is a quarterly journal (assuming all goes well, issues will publish in September, December, March, and June) built around an annual theme. The theme for 2019-20 is "A Protestant Christendom?" Each issue will feature a couple of longer articles related to the theme, plus a smattering of shorter unthemed articles, historical sketches, and book reviews.
Thanks to a special gift from a generous donor, Ad Fontes will now be available again in print as well as via digital subscription. Subscribe below to receive your quarterly issues!
