“Crkva u svijetu”, meaning “Church in the World”, abbr. CuS, is a theological periodical initiated in 1966 by the Split-Makarska archbishop dr. Frane Franić and his closest collaborators. Since then the periodical has been published continually, first as a bimonthly and then as a quarterly publication. In an atmosphere of opening of Catholic Church toward the modern world after the Second Vatican Council, CuS became a significant place of theological analysis of church problem in Croatian areas and also a stage for dialogues between the Church and the world, Christian faith and the actual society.
The periodical has the following sections: discussions, contributions, views, presentations and retrospects. Under the section discussions, more extensive works from the field of theology and philosophy are published. The section contributions carries individual documents or their comments.
The section views presents our collaborators’ subjective views and assessments. Presentations and retrospects include the presentations and reviews of books dealing with the problem area of religion, as well as the retrospects of important scientific meetings and church events.
