Founded in 2000 by S.E.R. Kerekes László and Marton József, the StThTr features original articles addressing theology and religion written in Hungarian, accompanied by abstracts in English or another international language. However, the editorial board also welcomes contributions in English, German, or Italian.

The journal comprises four sections:

  1. Studies: original research articles by established scholars;

  2. Workshop: high-quality essays by young researchers (postgraduate and PhD students);

  3. Sources: primary source documents relevant in Transylvanian church history;

  4. Book reviews. 

The aim of the journal is to provide interdisciplinary exchange, promoting academic research on theology and religion in Hungarian-speaking countries.
