The journal Marian Studies is the proceedings of the annual national meeting of the Mariological Society of America (MSA). The MSA is a Catholic theological association dedicated to studying and making known the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the mystery of Christ and the Church and in the history of salvation. Through its annual meeting and the journal Marian Studies, the Society seeks to promote original research in Marian doctrine and devotion.
The MSA has been headquartered at the Marian Library at the University of Dayton since 1979; Marian Studies has been edited there since that time.Mariological Society of America website
Current Volume: Volume 65 (2014) Forty Years after ‘Marialis Cultus’: Retrieval or Renewal?
Starting with Volume LXV (Volume 65, 2014), Marian Studies became a fully electronic, open-access publication; current and past issues are freely available online.
The 65th annual meeting of the Mariological Society of America took place May 20–23, 2014, at Viterbo University (La Crosse, Wisconsin). The program, entitled “Forty Years after Marialis Cultus: Retrieval or Renewal,” was devoted to this significant document on Marian devotion issued by Paul VI in 1974. The presentations reflected the “broadening” of Marian devotion that resulted from directives given in Marialis Cultus.
A print version of the entire volume is available through Lulu Press for $15 per copy; use the "Buy print version" button that appears under the image of the journal's cover.
