History. The first issue of the scientific journal was published in 1999 as a philological edition of Kaunas Faculty of Humanities (from 01/01/2017 – Kaunas Faculty) of Vilnius University. In 2002 the international editorial board consisting of leading scientists of Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Russia and Belarus was formed. The journal became an international edition of regional character and was published with double numbering 1 (6).

In 2004 Vilnius University Kaunas Faculty of Humanities was joined by Holly Cross Academy n. a. Jan Kochanowski which is situated in one of the oldest towns of Poland in Kielce. In 2008 the Academy was renamed the Jan Kochanowski University of Humanities and Natural Sciences. In 2011, this higher education institution was renamed the Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce.

Polish scholars united with the colleagues from Lithuania to support the journal whose interdisciplinary approach and orientation at strengthening the cooperation among scholars of the humanities from different countries had gained acknowledgement in Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Belarus, the USA, Ukraine and Finland. The journal became popular not only locally, but also involved authors from the USA, the Great Britain, Canada, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine. Polish language among Lithuanian, Russian and English became the fourth main language of the journal.

Until 2016 the journal was headed by professor of Vilnius University Dr. Habil. Eleonora Lassan. The editorial board was reformed in 2016. Professor of Vilnius University Dr. Gabija Bankauskaitė was elected a new editor-in-chief.
