PUBLICATIONS

The Canadian Catholic Historical Association publishes a fully refereed annual journal entitled Historical Studies. In it are printed a selection of papers that were primarily prepared for CCHA conferences in addition to some other submissions from CCHA members. The French Section adds papers in French from its annual conference. A feature of Historical Studies since 1964 has been an annual bibliography of Canadian Church History. The combined papers and bibliography form a book of some 350 pages. Copies of most back volumes may be obtained from the Secretary-General at $25 per volume, postage and handling included. The CCHA Bulletin is published twice yearly.

Also available online are back issues of the CCHA from 1933 to the present, as well as indices for the issues from 1933 through 1983:

Since 1964, the CCHA journal has published an annual Bibliography of Canadian Religious History. These annual bibliographies have now been integrated into one resource, which may be accessed at the following link:
