This contribution is written on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the foundation of the in 1946. It sketches the vicissitudes of the journal over this period, the policy of the editorial board, the relationship to the more ‘popular’ journal , and the importance of and reviews of theological literature. The Dutch Theological Journal, originally, was a joint venture of the theological faculties of the state universities of Leiden, Groningen, Utrecht and Amsterdam. In the 1990s the theological faculties of Brussels and the Free University in Amsterdam joined the editorial board. It has always been an ‘academic’ journal to which scholars from the various branches of theology contributed. Special importance has been accorded – both by editors and readers – to the reviews. Especially in its early decades, the editors thought it to be the leading Dutch theological journal and wanted to maintain a high level of scholarship, which could lead to devastating critiques of books which in their view did not meet the required standards.
