Marian Library Studies specializes in works of research on Christ, Mary, and the Church --- as shown in the list of available volumes and highlighted in the following content analysis:

Vols. 3, 4 & 5 are indispensable for the study of the Greek homilists of the fifth century.

Vols. 11 & 12 study Erasmus' role in the elaboration of a Marian devotion reflective of a shift to the modern age.

Vols. 15-16 studies the religious, moral, and social mentality of medieval Christians, analyzing the Marian miracles as expressions of popular piety and as testimony to the beginning of a Christian humanism.

Vols. 17-23 is a Festschrift dedicated to Father T. Koehler, S.M., and edited by Father J. Roten, S.M., director of the International Marian Research Institute. This issue gathers some sixty papers written by renowned authors (over eight-hundred pages).

Vol. 24 is dedicated to three eminent modern theologians: John Henry Newman, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Henri de Lubac.

Vol. 25 studies Urs von Balthasar (continuation), the Heart of Mary in the Latin tradition (seventh to sixteenth cent.), and prayers to Mary from a fifteenth/sixteenth-century manuscript.

Vol. 26 treats Urs von Balthasar (continuation), Saint Therese, Mary as Servant in the New Creation, Chaucer's Constance and the Sorrowing Mary, Jean de Fecamp and the Pseuso-augustinian De Assumptione, and two previously unknown shrine-madonna statues (Vierges ouvrantes).
