Style Guidelines

    • All manuscripts sent to Trinity Journal for consideration should conform to the guidelines established by the Journal of Biblical Literature, unless otherwise noted.
    • A useful resource for standard abbreviations in biblical and theological studies is: SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd edition (SBL Press, 2014). Whenever matters of style are not covered there, please refer to: The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition (University of Chicago Press, 2010).  There is also a free online version of The Chicago Manual of Style available. 
    • Under no circumstances will files without Unicode Fonts be accepted. Free Greek and Hebrew fonts are available online at the Society of Biblical Literature
    • Additional questions concerning this guideline can be addressed to the editor at

Submission Process

    • Authors should include an abstract with each article they submit for consideration in addition to the manuscript text of the article.  
    • Manuscripts should be no more than 10,000 words (excluding footnotes). 
    • Manuscripts are preferred in MS Word with Unicode fonts.
    • Submitted articles are distributed to the Trinity Journal editorial board with the author’s name omitted from the manuscript. The board then determines whether the article should be published, and the editor notifies the author accordingly. 
    • Note that the editor reserves the right to decline unsolicited manuscripts.
