Publishers Description
Since 1967, the "New Catholic Encyclopedia, cited by Library Journal as one of the top 50 reference sources of the millennium, has been a standard in public, academic and high school libraries worldwide, Prized for its scholarly presentation of persons and subjects related to Catholicism and the humanities, the "Encyclopedia is the first place you turn when your users have questions on topics such as abortion, divorce, cloning and reproductive technology. Thomson Gale, together with The Catholic University of America, is proud to announce a new and updated edition of this multivolume set--the first new edition in more than 30 years. The Catholic Church, while maintaining continuity with its past, has opened a new dialogue with the world's cultures and developments in science and scholarship. At the same time, it has undergone extensive changes in missionary outlook, liturgical practice and church discipline. This revised edition reports on both the old and the new, featuring contributions from hundreds of scholars from all over the world, under the guidance of Catholic University of America's Reverend Berard Marthaler, O.F.M. and Thomson Gale. Among the 12,000 entries in the "Encyclopedia are articles on theology, philosophy, history, literary figures, saints, musicians and much more. In addition to the hundreds of new, signed articles on a wide variety of topics, this new edition also features biographies of contemporary religious figures; thousands of photographs, maps and illustrations; and completely updated bibliographical citations. The 15th volume is a cumulative index to the entire encyclopedia.
