PERIODIC PUBLICATION OF THE DIOCESAN ACADEMY OF THEOLOGICAL AND HISTORICAL STUDIES OF ΤΗΕ HOLY METEORA
The scientific journal Analecta Stagorum et Meteororum aims to promote and highlight the history, culture, spiritual life and artistic treasures of the Meteora monasteries. The journal is managed by a three-member editorial board, which serves for a three-year term. In addition, advisory committees of specialists, which may consist of up to six members, assist with the journal’s peer reviewing and editing. The make-up of the committees can be changed according to the journal’s needs in every issue.
Given that the journal seeks to present and illuminate various unknown or lesser-known aspects of the heritage of the local Church, the Meteora monasteries and, by extension, northwest Thessaly as a whole, as an epicenter of historical developments and a sphere of intercultural interaction, it accommodates a wide range of scientific interests. More specifically, it deals with the following disciplines: hagiography and liturgics, philology, epigraphy and paleography, history and archaeology, material culture and art history, historical anthropology and sociology, the history of architecture and landscape studies, museology and conservation science.
Studies submitted for publication by the journal are subject to a critical review by two reviewers who are experts on the subject treated. Authors/researchers must take the reviewers’ remarks into account and strictly observe the detailed guidelines; otherwise their studies will not be accepted. Once the journal has been published, the contributors will receive a hard copy of the issue, as well as a PDF of their contribution that has been assigned with a DOI. This can be made available online a year after its print publication. Finally, each issue will be complemented by a concise online editorial.
