SÆCULUM appeared, in a new series, in 1995, on the initiative of Ion Dur a university professor and well-known Romanian philosopher, literary critic and essay writer, as a continuation of the numbers printed in 1943 and 1944, by the philosopher Lucian Blaga (1895-1961), who had founded the journal. It was registered at OSIM, as an academic journal of the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, ISSN 1221-2245. SÆCULUM appears biannually and is printed in a double edition, usually running to overalmost every time with more than 250 pages.
SÆCULUM as a journal of the humanities and social sciences publishes articles in the four languages used for academic purposes at the “Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu: Romanian, English, French and German. What SÆCULUM is can clearly be seen by what it publishes: a complementary blend of philosophy and aesthetics, literature and criticism, history and collective mentality, to which we can add other areas of culture explored from the hermeneutic point of view: Founding Culture, The Faces of The Ages, Convergences / Divergences, Identity-Alterity, Palimpsest, History and Memory, Argument of Creation, The Lesson of Hermeneutics, (S)elective Affinities, Glass Curtain, Aesthetic Experience, Religion and Spirit, Communication-Communion, Reviews-Notes-Notation. SÆCULUM permanently incorporates reference articles, written by Romanian authors and from abroad, who bestow on the magazine the appropriate amount of prestige. Published articles have often become consistent bibliographic reference points, being appreciated not only for their style but also for the depth and originality of their ideas. Sæculum has been indexed since 2011 in the following databases: EBSCO and CEEOL.
