Bunyan Studies

Bunyan Studies: A Journal of Reformation and Nonconformist Culture

The annual refereed journal Bunyan Studies provides a forum for scholarship on John Bunyan’s life and writings. Although the focus is on Bunyan, the journal also includes articles on the literary, religious and historical contexts within which his works were produced, and on the ways in which his most important work, The Pilgrim’s Progress has spread across the world in over 200 languages since its first publication. The inclusion of ‘Reformation’ in the sub-title signals an interest in religious writings and practice from the period before Bunyan, while ‘Nonconformist’ signals an equal interest in reaching forwards to encompass the history of the Nonconformist tradition throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and even into the twentieth century. The word ‘Culture’ signals that we are not limited to literary material and approaches, but will publish articles on the wider religious, social and historical contexts of the long period covered by the journal.
