Edith Stein House as a Patron of “Edith Stein Studies” by Rowman and Littlefield

On January 28th, the feast of Saint Thomas Aquinas, four Edith Stein researchers from Ireland, Cracow and USA (Mette Lebech, Maynooth University Ireland; Timothy Burns, University of St. Thomas; Jadwiga Guerrero van der Meijden, Uniwersytet Jagielloński; Robert McNamara, Franciscan University of Steubenville) signed a contract with Roman and Littlefield initiating ‘Edith Stein Studies”, a scientific book series dedicated to Edith Stein’s heritage. Following the completion of Edith Stein’s collected works (Edith Stein Gesamtausgabe, Herder, 2000-2020), this will be the second largest scientific investigation dedicated to the writings of the Patroness of Europe.

Edith Stein Studies will publish high quality research into Edith Stein’s thought, its historical importance, and its contemporary relevance. It will do so by featuring companions to each of the works of Edith Stein as well as monographs and edited collections on Stein’s thought, its applications, and comparative aspects. The companions identify the structure and method of Stein’s works, provide an orientation on its place in the overall work, indicate its sources and context, and discuss its relevance for contemporary debates. Monographs and edited volumes on various themes in or relating to Stein’s philosophy, along with the companions, are authored by experienced Stein scholars and are rigorously peer reviewed. Edith Stein Studies enjoys the patronage of the International Association for the Study of the Philosophy of Edith Stein (IASPES), The Edith Stein House in Wrocław, and the Institute of Carmelite Studies.
