The theatre journal Didaskalia was established in December 1993 in the circle of the Jagiellonian University. Since March 2007, the Jerzy Grotowski Institute in Wrocław has been the publisher, and the co-publisher is the Faculty of Polish Philology of the Jagiellonian University.

Didaskalia is a critical reflection of phenomena from various areas of theatre and art. In addition to the first nights of dramatic theatre, we regularly discuss events in the fields of dance, performance, visual arts and opera. Information about current life in theatre is intertwined with reflection on the history and tradition of theatre and performing arts, seeing them as mutually illuminating and explaining spaces. The events of current theatre life are inscribed in the wider context of contemporary humanistic thought. An important element of the journal are thematic sections dedicated to selected theoretical, political and philosophical issues, which broaden the field of interpretation of theatre and its presence in social life.
Didaskalia are placed on the list of journals scoring the Ministry of Science and Higher Education with the number of points 40 in the following disciplines: arts studies, culture and religion studies, literary studies.
