Ons Geestelijk Erf

Ons Geestelijk Erf is a quarterly journal devoted to the history of the spirituality in the Low Countries, published by the Ruusbroec Institute since 1927. It covers the period from the Christianization of the Low Countries until the end of the Ancien Régime. Each year four issues are published, comprising approximately four hundred pages in total. 

In 1927 the journal was created by D.A. Stracke s.J. († 1970), which, since then, has been published by the Ruusbroec Institute, which became part of the Universitaire Faculteiten Sint-Ignatius te Antwerpen (UFSIA) in 1973. Since 2003 the Ruusbroec Institute is part of the University of Antwerp as an institute for the history of the spirituality in the Low Counrties until c. 1750.
