Cristianesimo nella Storia is published by the Fondazione per le scienze religiose Giovanni XXIII in Bologna. It was founded by Giuseppe Alberigo and in 2009 it celebrated its thirtieth birthday. The director is now professor Giuseppe Ruggieri.

This peer-reviewed journal publishes research of international importance by authoritative scholars on the history of Christianity. It focuses in particular on the contexts and cultures with which Christians have come into contact, from the Old Testament and Judaism to the secularised society of today. Issued three times a year, Cristianesimo nella Storia includes research articles, reports, shorter notices and reviews, which update the reader on new ideas emerging from international research in history, theology and exegetics. One issue a year is a special issue on a monographic theme and the first number each year includes an index for the preceding twelve months. In its 30th year, the indices for 1980 to 2009 were issued as a supplement and are also available in digital format.

The journal has been peer-reviewed since 2008, is Class A for the History of Christianity and evaluated as INT2 in "Religious Studies and Theology" (ERIH list 2007).
