Back to Editorial Overview


De Gruyter’s Department of Theology, Jewish Studies, and Religious Studies is a recognized leader in academic publishing, marked by a rich variety of topics and a high degree of interdisciplinarity.

Our portfolio of titles is renowned for both well-established book series and reference works in the field of biblical studies, as well as for our editions from the patristic sources, the writings of influential theologians of the modern era, our interdisciplinary program in religious studies and for our wide array of journals.

Further, our program also includes relevant reference works such as the Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception and the Theologische Realenzyklopädie, which are both also available as databases.

Our program is extensive, with over 80 new titles published per year and a backlist comprising over 4,500 different titles from our long-standing history.

Our program is also enhanced through partnerships alongside groups such as the Society of the Biblical Literature and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen.
