About the Journal

In order to promote scientific research, the seminary publishes a bi-annual: the Malabar Theological Review (MTR). The periodical will be out of the press in the months of February and July of every year. From the time of the Portuguese missionaries, the territory of the St. Thomas Christians (The Christians in India) was mainly restricted to the Malabar Coast; thereafter, the term ‘Malabar’ has often been used to designate the St. Thomas Christians; besides, from the time of the British rule, the northern region of Kerala where the Good Shepherd Major Seminary is situated has commonly been known as Malabar. The name Malabar Theological Review implies both these concepts: it is an effort of the St Thomas Christians, and it is a work done by the Catholic Church from the region of Malabar. The MTR attempts to be a light of scientific research that illuminates the biblical, patristic, and theological studies. Together with biblical and patristic studies, the review gives special attention to the studies in the areas of the history and culture of the St. Thomas Christians, and the theology of the Eastern Churches.

Manuscript Submission

Authors are responsible for the contents of their contributions especially for the accuracy of the quotations and their attribution. Before sending a manuscript for publication in the MTR, the author should first get in contact with the chief editor. The suggested article should then be sent to the chief editor as a Microsoft Word file (RTF format) accompanied by the PDF of the same. Including the notes, the article should normally be between 5000 and 10000 words. If the article uses any Ancient Near Eastern language, the file should also be accompanied by the fonts employed; please see that these fonts are compatible with Adobe Page Maker.

Books for Reviews

Please send the books for review to the chief editor. One of the members of the editorial board will be reviewing the books.
