Publication of updated New Catholic Encyclopedia
Publishers in the US last month released the first update since 1967 of the 15 volume New Catholic Encyclopedia.
The publicity states that the work is recognised by Library Journal as one of the top 50 reference sources of the millennium. Since 1967, it has been a standard in public, academic and high school libraries worldwide.
The Encyclopedia is published jointly by Catholic University of America Press and the Gale Group.
The revised edition features contributions from hundreds of scholars from all over the world, under the guidance of Catholic University of America's Fr Berard Marthaler OFMConv. and Gale.
The publishers have incorporated new content including liturgical changes, biographies of deceased Catholics, newly canonised saints, changes in women's roles, and the voluminous activity of John Paul II's papacy.
