The publishing house OIKOYMENH builds on the heritage of the samizdat edition founded by Ladislav Hejdánek in the 1970s whose aim was to publish critical articles and works in the best tradition of European philosophy and theology.

Over time, the publishing house started focusing on the canon works of this very tradition. These classical works are published in the following series: The Library of Ancient Tradition, The Library of Early Christian Tradition, The Library of Medieval Tradition, The Library of Renaissance Thought, and The Library of Modern Tradition and Contemporary Thought. Secondary literature or texts by authors not included in the series of classical works are part of Oikúmené Series.

In the series History of Philosophy, the selected monographs on particular periods of the history of European philosophy are issued. Other OIKOYMENH series are: History of Political Thought, History of Religious Thinking, Library of Political Thought, Fontes Latini Bohemorum, Ancient Literature of Levant, Collected Writings of Jan Patočka, Mathésis, and Philosophical Interpretations.
