Liturgisches Jahrbuch – chief editor

The Liturgisches Jahrbuch (liturgical yearbook) is a renowned liturgical studies journal that enjoys an excellent reputation both in Germany and abroad as the voice of German-language liturgical studies. It was established in 1951 as the academic publication of the German Liturgical Institute.

It analyses current questions about worship from an anthropological, historical, and theological perspective and puts them it the overall context of Church life. It offers background information on the most important developments in the liturgy in the German-speaking area and beyond. In doing so, its aim is to contribute to the theological exploration of the Church’s worship and to revitalize the liturgy in the spirit of the Second Vatican Council.

Issues are published four times a year by Aschendorff Verlag Münster.
Submission deadlines for authors: January 15, April 15, July 15, and September 30.

Prof. Dr. Jürgen Bärsch has been the chief editor of the Liturgisches Jahrbuch since January 1, 2007.

Editorial supervision: Benedikt Winkel
