The Cord (Quarterly Journal)

The Cord, a quarterly review which deals with topics having to do with the Franciscan spiritual tradition, celebrates sixty-two years of continuous publication in 2012. It offers articles of historical interest, as well as articles dealing with contemporary applications. Its primary purpose is to promote a deeper knowledge and more ardent love of the Franciscan way of life. It solicits articles which help readers appreciate better the Franciscan charism, its relevance in the contemporary Church, as well as some of the ways Franciscans are making a difference in today’s world. It restricts its material to Franciscan spirituality and to such matters as are of particular concern and interest to the English-speaking Franciscan family throughout the world.
The Cord periodically reviews books of interest to Franciscans. It also provides a feature called “On the Franciscan Circuit” to share information about Franciscan programs taking place throughout the country and English-speaking world. It publishes short poems and art work that deal with Franciscan themes.

Cithara is a peer-reviewed journal published in May and November by St. Bonaventure University and distributed in both hardcopy and electronic format (by EBSCO Publishing).  

 Cithara has as its purpose the publication of essays and book reviews relating to the problems of human beings in the light of their heritage and of their future. Although investigations in the field of liberal arts will more frequently furnish materials suitable for publication, the approach to such “essays in the Judaeo-Christian tradition” should be inter-departmental and should state or imply a relationship to that religious and cultural inheritance.
The yearly subscription rate is US $20.00 ($1.00 additional postage for foreign subscribers).
Single issues (including back issues if available), $10.00. Copies of individual articles may also be purchased.
Back issues for most years are currently available
Submissions from potential contributors are received electronically in MS Word format at the e-mail address listed above. The style is that of the MLA Handbook, Fourth Edition. Notes should be formatted separately as endnotes and attached at the end of the file as a separate page.
