Thank you for considering The Wheel for your library collection. If you are ready to subscribe, please visit our institutional subscriptions page.

The Wheel is an interdisciplinary print journal of Orthodox Christian theology and culture. Since its launch in 2015, The Wheel has established itself as a leading voice in Orthodox Christian public discourse. We publish research essays and critical commentary, book reviews, translations of historic and contemporary texts, poetry and short stories, and art. Recent contributions have covered:

  • political theology

  • philosophy/philosophical theology

  • theological hermeneutics

  • natural science

  • church history

  • hagiography

  • missiology

  • ecumenism

  • sacred arts

  • liturgy

  • theological ethics

  • Orthodox current affairs

Original contributors of note have included John Behr, Peter Berger, Sergei Chapnin, Brandon Gallaher, Susan Holman, Pantelis Kalaitzidis, Nadieszda Kizenko, Vassa Larin, Andrew Louth, Aristotle Papanikolaou, Elizabeth Prodromou, Kallistos Ware, Gayle Woloschak, and Christos Yannaras.

The Wheel’s editorial board includes both academics and professionals in other fields, and is supported by a wider network of subject experts and occasional editors. The international advisory board is comprised of senior scholars and figures in church life from a range of canonical jurisdictions.

The Wheel seeks to bridge the gap between academic, ecclesiastical, and wider cultural reflection. We therefore solicit contributions from academics and independent scholars while requiring that material is presented in an accessible style. 

The journal is published quarterly and the exclusive language of publication is English. Original contributions or classic texts in other languages (predominantly Russian, Greek, and French) frequently appear in translations made exclusively for The Wheel.
