Mennonitische Welt, a 24-page, 8 x 1/2 in. monthly, which was the successor to Mennonitische Lehrerzeitung (continuous volume numbering), and which appeared from July 1950 to December 1952. With the issue of January 1951 the publisher was indicated as Canadian Mennonite Publishers, Ltd., Winnipeg, Manitoba (changed in May 1951 to Mennonite Publishers of Canada, Ltd., also Winnipeg). The editor was Victor Peters of Horndean, Manitoba, until May 1951, when Walter Quiring and Victor Peters appear as joint editors, Peters dropping out with the April 1952 number. The last number published was dated December 1952. The journal combined literary and cultural interests with religious and historical, maintaining the Mennonite faith, life, and work as its focus, but not competing with the regular church periodicals. It announced a policy of serving German-speaking Mennonites everywhere and solicited contributions internationally.
