Aims and Scope

Studia Rudolphina: Bulletin of the Research Center for Art and Culture in the Age of Rudolf II was founded in 2001. It is an international peer-reviewed journal focused on art and culture in the age of Emperor Rudolf II (with overlaps reaching from ca. 1520 to ca. 1620), published once a year. We welcome contributions employing the various spectrum of methodological approaches of art history, also texts based on broader interdisciplinary collaboration with other humanities disciplines. The texts are exclusively published in English and German, if accepted, we can offer to pay for the cost of translation. The journal is indexed in Scopus, EBSCO and ERIH plus databases.

Each issue contains several studies and also shorter contributions in the section called "Prima Idea"; occasionally we launch the section "Fontes", in which archival findings on Rudolphine topics with critical commentary are published. Regular part of our bulletin are sections "Bibliography", containing list of publications on a particular subjects or personal bibliography of Rudolphine prominent researchers. The column "Info" reports about activities of the members of our research centre and occasionally about major events organised by them (conferences and exhibitions). A separate part of our periodical consists of the proceedings from international meetings; the first such item was München – Prag um 1600, published in 2009, and another oneDresden–Pragum 1600 (2018). All articles are provided by short summaries in English which are together edited at the end of each volume.
