The Heythrop Journal was founded in 1960 by Dr Bruno Brinkman, S.J., then Prefect of Studies at Heythrop College. At that time, Heythrop College was not yet a College of the University of London. Among Bruno's aims in founding the Journal were those of encouraging the College's teachers to share their considerable scholarship with a wider community and to enhance the academic profile of the College in preparation for the university status to which it aspired. But Bruno's aims were deeper and far more expansive than that, for in accord with his own theological vision, he aimed to provide a forum for ecumenical and international dialogue among Christian philosophers and theologians. This was the ideal he pursued as first editor of the Journal (1960-1970). Subsequent editors (Robert Murray, Joe Munitiz, Tom Deidun, Michael Walsh, Pat Madigan) with the support of Heythrop College's editorial board continued to pursue this ideal.
Following the closure of Heythrop College, University of London, the Heythrop Journal will continue to be published by Wiley-Blackwell Publishing from its new base at Campion Hall, Oxford.
