International Journal of African Catholicism - IJAC

    About the International Journal of African Catholicism

    Founded in 2009, the International Journal of African Catholicism (IJAC) is an ecumenical interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal that promotes discussion within the African Catholic community and dialogue between African and international scholars. 

    Supported by Saint Leo University's Department of Religion, Theology and Philosophy, IJAC publishes scholarly articles that reflect on the African experience of Catholicism, and promote discussion among writers around the globe. 

    The Journal appeals to those interested in the religious life of continental Africa and its dialogue with the world.
