LOGOS (λόγος)


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1

Our Namesake:

Named for the Greek term meaning “word,” “reason,” “principle,” and “logic,” The Yale Logos is a semesterly journal of Christian thought that seeks to stimulate discussion of a Christian worldview in a way that is relevant, accessible, and engaging to the Yale community.

Our Story:

The Yale Logos was founded in 2009 by a group of students from different Christian traditions in Yale Students for Christ. They wanted to present Yale’s campus with pieces that showcase Christian thought as beautiful and intellectually satisfying. We uphold the Nicene Creed as a baseline for Christian orthodoxy, but we have had staff from very diverse Christian backgrounds. See our constitution to learn more about our mission and doctrinal beliefs.

We believe the light of Christ– the Word made flesh– should guide our thoughts and deeds, and we want to show Yale’s campus that the gospel has relevant, intellectually rigorous answers to questions they raise about life, meaning, and justice.

The Logos is published by Yale College students; neither Yale University nor its affiliates are responsible for the material herein.
