After a century in Evanston and Chicago, the Anglican Theological Review (ATR) is moving its offices to Sewanee, Tennessee. Beginning in January, the journal’s operations will be housed at the School of Theology of the University of the South, one of the Journal’s 19 sponsoring Episcopal and Anglican seminaries in the United States and Canada.
“We are deeply grateful to Bexley Seabury Seminary, and its predecessor institutions—Seabury Western in Evanston, and in the early years, Western Seminary in Chicago—for 100 years of hospitality and collegiality as the first hosts of the ATR,” says Roger Ferlo, president of the ATR. “We now move the journal south, where we will deepen our long-time relationship with the School of Theology and its Beecken Center for continuing education, and also develop a new and exciting connection with the faculty and students of the University of the South—the flagship Episcopal institution of higher learning in the United States.”
The Rt. Rev. J. Neil Alexander, dean of the School of Theology, had this to say, “Sewanee is honored to be the new home of the ATR. As a sponsoring institution of the journal for many decades, we are committed to seeing that the journal continues to prosper, its readership grow, and its service to Anglicans in North America and throughout the world be enhanced. We look forward to working with the ATR’s board, editors, and staff, to build on the journal’s distinguished legacy.”
“We have every hope that this new association will allow the ATR to move from strength to strength, as we continue to provide a primary source of groundbreaking, peer-reviewed theological research and reflection in service to Episcopal and Anglican seminaries and congregations in North America, as well as the global Anglican Communion,” adds Ferlo.
