Description

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!
