On the life, work, and mindset of Hilton Kramer.   Read more...

Historical Imagination and the Renewal of Culture - Michael D. O'Brien

Michael O'Brien shows how art and artists both reflect and inspire the religious sensibilities of their culture, and if the present nihilistic art is not to lead culture into the sewer, a revival in authentic religious art must arrive quickly.  Read more...

Hollywood Knows Him Not - Christmas Movies You Want to See - TERRY TEACHOUT

Why have there been so few really good holiday films? It seems there's this little catch: Christmas is about Christ, and Hollywood knows Him not.  Read more...

Hollywood Revival? - National Catholic Register

Today, Christians are saving Hollywood at the box office. Tomorrow, movie theaters might just be one more place Christians save the culture.  Read more...

Homer's Odyssey: A Reflection of Womanhood - Mitchell A. Kalpakgian

Homer's great epic about the family as the center of civilization portrays two different types of woman: women who are pro-marriage and pro-family and women who are anti-marriage and anti-family.   Read more...

Hope is unsinkable - Donald DeMarco

December 7th evokes the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, "a date which will live in infamy". It also evokes, to those who love the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins (S.J.), the less epochal but nonetheless tragic morning of December 7th, 1875, when the S. S. Deutschland ran aground off the east coast of England.   Read more...

Hope on Ice: the Felicitous Fiction of Jon Hassler - Charlotte Hays

Whenever I read the novels of Jon Hassler, whose funny and beautifully crafted stories, mostly about Catholics in the upper Midwest, call to mind his fellow Minnesotan and Catholic writer, the late J.F. Powers, I wonder what it’s like to be one of the best American novelists alive, yet largely unknown beyond a coterie of fanatical admirers such as myself.  Read more...

House of Christ the King: Churches of the Early Christian Centuries - Michael S. Rose

The earliest Christian “houses of God” not only established themselves as permanent sacred places, they reflected in many ways the divinely inspired design and construction of Solomon’s Temple and its transient precursor, the Tabernacle in the Wilderness.   Read more...

House of God Foundations - Michael S. Rose

The moveable tent-like sanctuary of the Hebrews is the earliest known structure in Judeo culture to establish a sacred place, one that was specifically meant to be a “house of God.” Whereas the tabernacles of the Christian churches are designed to hold the presence of God in His Sacrament of the Eucharist, Israel’s tabernacle in the wilderness housed the presence of God in a different way.  Read more...

Household Stories of the Brothers Grimm - Mitchell A. Kalpakgian

In the world of fairy tales one can never underestimate the significance of a kind deed, a friendly favor, the integrity of a promise, or hard work.   Read more...

How The Passion Changed Him - Tim Drake

Jim Caviezel was already a devout Catholic when he got the role of Christ in Mel Gibson's "The Passion of Christ".  Read more...

Hypocrisy $tar$ in Hollywood - Rex Murphy

Long before Leonard Cohen, Cyril Connolly wrote of it being “closing-time in the gardens of the West.” Glancing at the gargantuan heaps of money we fling to the wind for the “unnecessities” of our distracted lives, perhaps it is not such a bad thing that there is a closing time.  Read more...

I saw "The Passion" - Barbara Nicolosi

So I was at a private screening at Icon Productions yesterday, and got to see a rough cut of "The Passion". There were about twelve people in the room, including Mel Gibson, his producing partner Steve and four or five other Icon staffers.  Read more...

Imagination: The Heart’s Best Guide - William Kilpatrick, Gregory Wolfe, and Suzanne M. Wolfe

Concepts such as virtue, good example, and character have been out of fashion in our society for quite some time, and their absence is reflected in the available guidebooks to children’s literature. What is missing from these guides — what seems to be avoided — is any suggestion that certain books may help to develop character, and that others may not. The distinctive feature of this book, by contrast, is its focus on the moral dimension of reading.  Read more...

In Praise of Paul Claudel - Robert Royal

Who's the greatest modern Catholic poet?  Read more...

In the Image and Likeness of God: Classical Renaissance - Michael S. Rose

In Italy, the Gothic style never really took hold. In a land built on classical antiquity, Gothic was seen as outlandish, alien, and un-Italian. Consequently, Gothic architecture was increasingly regarded with contempt. In fact, the 15th-century Italian architect Filarete (1400-69) once declared: “A curse on those who thought of such rubbish! Only barbarians can have brought it into Italy.”  Read more...

Infant Awe: A Review of Babies! - Meghan Duke

Babies! Eighty glorious minutes of babies.   Read more...

Inside Leonardo's Notebook - Francis X. Rocca

World-famous as a capital of fashion and design, Milan, Italy's second city, has a more modest reputation for cultural heritage.   Read more...

Catholic convert Joseph Pearce is author of two popular books on J.R.R. Tolkien, Tolkien: Man and Myth and Tolkien: A Celebration (both Ignatius Press).

Introduction to Paul Horgan's Things As They Are - George Weigel

Although my years at Baltimore's St. Paul Latin High School coincided with the cultural meltdown of the Age of Aquarius, I was happily spared the kind of English-class reading lists with which students (and parents) are now afflicted.  Read more...

Introduction: Eliot and His Age - Benjamin G. Lockerd, Jr.

Eliot and His Age: T. S. Eliot's Moral Imagination in the Twentieth Century is a model of the best scholarly writing: sympathetic but not adulatory; learned but not pedantic; comprehensive but never plodding; complex but eminently readable. This essential book has been out of print for a few years now, and it is cause for celebration that this new edition is being published.  Read more...
