STM Graduate Student Academic Journal
Lumen et Vita, meaning "Light and Life," is the graduate student journal of the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. An online, open-access volume of research, reflections, and reviews by a range of STM students, its goal is to encourage ongoing dialogue within the school and to fuel interdisciplinary conversation across the entire Boston College community. In addition to shining a light on the rich variety of interests within the STM, Lumen et Vita provides students with a professional editorial forum in which to share their scholarly work.
