About the Ichthus

The Harvard Ichthus is a journal of Christian thought and expression produced by undergraduates at Harvard University.  Its mission is threefold: first, to foster deep Christian thought at Harvard; second, to nurture a loving community of Christian writers and artists; and third, to proclaim the truth, beauty, and power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Many come to Harvard with misconceptions about the Christian faith and its compatibility with a rigorous intellectual life. The Ichthus aims to engage with and, ultimately, defy those misconceptions. The Ichthus publishes pieces of writing that explore God and God’s creation, taking seriously the original motto of Harvard University: “Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae,” in English “Truth for Christ and the Church.”
