Review for Religious was published by Jesuits of the Missouri Province from 1942 through January 2012. This journal published articles of interest for women and men religious across the spectrum of religious life from active apostolic communities to contemplative monastic communities and covered a wide range of topics pertinent to religious life—prayer and spirituality, current best practices, and helpful canonical guidelines, etc. This collection provides a unique window into religious life during the 30 years leading up to Vatican II and documents the impact the Council had on religious communities during the 40 years that followed. Researchers should find this collection an invaluable resource for documenting the dramatic changes that took place in religious life over a span of 70 years.
Also included is an Article Index, created by Review for Religious staff. This index, which can be downloaded as a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, includes the title, author(s), and date of every article, as well as topical keywords for many of the articles. Click here to access a copy.
