Criteria for Membership

The International Association of Patristic Studies (I.A.P.S.) is not open to the general public. It is open only to scholars in patristics in the broad sense of the term, as shown by the numerous disciplines and methodological approaches reflected in the table of contents of the Bulletin. While scholars in patristics work in a variety of cultural, academic, and religious circumstances, applicants for membership should normally have published at least one article in a high-level scientific journal (with peer review).
