Marian Studies is the journal–the proceedings of the annual national meeting–of the Mariological Society of America. The Mariological Society of America (MSA) is a Catholic theological association dedicated to studying and making known the role of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the mystery of Christ and the Church and in the history of salvation. Through its annual meeting and its publication, Marian Studies, the Society seeks to promote original research in Marian doctrine and devotion. The table of contents for each issue is also available on the MSA resources section of the Mary Page of the Marian Library at University of Dayton.
