Sacris Erudiri is an international periodical of religious sciences in the broadest sense. Studies published refer mainly to the history of the Church, the history of liturgy and patristics. Whilst excluding nothing, the topics addressed refer more to factual and institutional history than to doctrinal history.

These articles often represent preliminary analyses for later critical editions of patristic and medieval texts to be published in various series of Corpus Christianorum.

Sacris Erudiri is indexed or abstracted in (inter alia) the printed (and, where appropriate, electronic) bibliographies of Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses,
Revue d’Histoire Ecclésiastique, L’Année Philologique, Revue d'Études Augustiniennes et Patristiques, Analecta Bollandiana, the International Medieval Bibliography and Medioevo Latino: bollettino bibliografico della cultura europea dal secolo VI al XIII.
