A Catholic Dictionary

£10.99

Product description

"The work here submitted to the public is intended to meet a practical want which has long been felt among English-speaking Catholics- the want, namely , of a single trustworthy source of information on points of Catholic doctrine, ritual, and discipline. All existing English works of a similar character- such as Hook's 'Church Dictionary', Blunt's 'Dictionary of Theology', Blunt's 'Dictionary of Sects', etc- were compiled by Protestants, and it is scarcely possible to turn over ten pages in one of them without meeting with some more or less open attack upon Catholicism. To this censure the 'Dictionary of Christian Antiquities', conducted by Dr. Smith and Professor Cheetham, is not open; but the large scale of that work, and the fact of its stopping short at the age of Charlemagne, are sufficient of themselves to prevent it from meeting the need above indicated."

VG pages, coloured frontis.

Some edge and board wear.
