Journal of the
Mark Granquist, editor
Journal of the Lutheran Historical Conference is a new publication of the Lutheran Historical Conference, beginning with the 2011 edition.
The Lutheran Historical Conference (LHC) has been in existence since 1962, with the purpose of encouraging and supporting the writing of the history of Lutherans in North America, and the collection and dissemination of its archival documents. To these ends, the LHC has met biennially since the 1960s, and continues to do so. Since 1966, the LHC has printed biennial volumes entitled Essays and Reports, recording the presentations and proceedings of its conferences. To date, 22 volumes of this publication have appeared from 1966 to 2006, and are a valuable record of Lutheran history in North America. The LHC has found, however, that this format is now too limiting and too infrequent, so it has decided to produce a new journal, the Journal of the Lutheran Historical Conference, which will appear annually.
The Journal of the Lutheran Historical Conference includes articles derived from papers given at its biennial meetings, but will also seek to expand offerings in these area, including an annual bibliography.
