The Theologische Zeitschrift (ThZ), founded in 1945 by Karl Ludwig Schmidt, is published by the Faculty of Theology of the University of Basel and is edited by Prof. Sonja Ammann (Hebrew Bible) and Georg Pfleiderer (Ethics). The journal, which is published with the financial support of the Swiss Academy for Humanities and Social Sciences (SAWG), does not follow a particular theological or confessional orientation. It reflects Basel's liberal tradition, is ecumenical in nature, and its selection of contribution is international in scope. Its international profile is also reflected by its acceptance of articles in German, French, and English and by its worldwide distribution, with subscribers in over 30 countries on almost every continent. Since its founding, the Theologische Zeitschrift has aimed to promote intra- and interdisciplinary dialogue in theology. In line with this aim, it publishes scholarly articles (only new contributions) and book reviews in every subject area of theology and associated fields, and especially articles that are relevant to more than one subject area.
