This article was written to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the launching of the theological periodical Bogoslovska smotra at the Catholic Faculty of Theology in Zagreb. The intention of the article is to present some vital points about the current media moment that theological periodicals are facing, followed by their role in contemporary history of theological universities, the type and when theological periodicals were founded and finally, to point out some concrete tasks with the aim of advancing this type of periodical. The article then investigates new electronic media and the emergence of current media culture as a real challenge to printed publications. Starting from the original role of scientific theological periodicals in the narrow sense, we come to the conclusion that today periodicals are vital to theological universities and academic theology as a forum to exchange opinions and attitudes, judgements and research evaluations and content of faith and dialogue with other fields of human knowledge. A larger portion of Croatian theological periodicals are of more recent datage emerging in the second half of the past century which is reflected in the fact that it is only in more recent times that circumstances and social conditions were more favourable to facilitate a powerful surge of scientific theology.
