An updated version of the critically acclaimed and best-selling reference work first published in 1995.
Still the most comprehensive single-volume compendium on the Church’s past – from Pentecost morning to today’s pontiff. OSV’s Encyclopedia of Catholic History, Revised, gives you:
- Some 2,750 entries based on more than 1000 sources
- An easy-to-use alphabetical format and a reader-friendly style
- Cross references for finding additional information
- A trusted resource on which students – from grade school to graduate school – can rely.
Each entry has been examined for improvement or updating, and more than two hundred items have been added. New features include:
- The latest encyclicals and papal documents (Evangelium Vitae, Ut Unum Sint, Fides et Ratio, Ecclessia de Eucharistia, and more)
- Biographies of the most recently canonized and beatified, such as Padre Pio, Josemaria Escriva, and Mother Teresa
- Histories of Catechetics, the Divine Office, and the Marian Year
- And more!
