Nuns Who Saved Polish Jews - Father Zygmunt Zielinski

As the world commemorates Yom HaShoah Day, remembering the Jews who perished at the hands of the Nazis during Holocaust, a Polish priest recounts the heroic rescues of Polish Jews by Catholic Nuns.  Read more...

On Jewish History - Christopher Dawson

Anyone who, like myself, has devoted himself to the study of the history of civilizations or of Western culture cannot go far in it without becoming aware of the importance of the Jews. Yet we have to travel a long way before we begin to understand the significance of Jewish history.  Read more...

On Jewish History - Christopher Dawson

Anyone who, like myself, has devoted himself to the study of the history of civilizations or of Western culture cannot go far in it without becoming aware of the importance of the Jews.   Read more...

Pius XII: Saintly defender of European Jews - Mary Jo Anderson

A rebuttal to the hyper hysterics of Rabbi Boteach's article, “Pius XII: Collaborator and kidnapper” is simple: No good deed goes unpunished. And, apparently, a heroic deed will be punished with a vengeance.   Read more...

Pope Pius XII and the Jews - SR. MARGHERITA MARCHIONE

Pope Pius XII has been unfairly blamed over the past fifty years: for not having denounced Hitler publicly, for his perceived inaction against the Nazis, and for his failure to help the Jews.  Read more...

Preface and Introduction to All Ye Lands - Michael J. Van Hecke & James Hitchcock

The Catholic Schools Textbook Project restores what has been lost in the secular texts and offers beautiful illustrations to accompany the story. We extend to teachers and students the first distinctively Catholic history textbooks since the 1960s.  Read more...

Preface: The Politically Incorrect Guide to Western Civilization - Anthony Esolen

For those of us who love the West, we are in a daunting battle. The other side has the mainstream media, the Ivy League, the political classes, and a lot more money. Thankfully, on our side, we've got thousands of years of history and some pretty big guns -- with names like Aristotle, Augustine, Burke, and Eliot.   Read more...

Remembering Lepanto - Michael Novak

The future author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes, served on one of the Christian galleys in what he called the greatest naval sea battle in history and the most important to that time for the safety of Europe.  Read more...

Remembering the Early Church - George Sim Johnston

Lately, I have been hearing a lot about how the primitive Church was not Roman Catholic.  Read more...

Requiem for the Third See of Christendom - Robert Spencer

Egypt today is the site of a persecution of the Church on a scale unseen in Western Europe since the darkest days of the French Revolution; the Coptic Church is fighting for its life under vicious and escalating attacks from Muslims.  Read more...

Rethinking the Crusades - Jonathan Riley Smith

The language that demands that our ancestors be posthumously anathematized is not too distant from that of the men who wanted the corpse of Pope Boniface VIII to be exhumed and burnt. We may be entering a period of conceptual uncertainty about the most difficult of all society’s dilemmas — when or when not to use force — and we need not emotion, but cool heads and an objective analysis of the past.  Read more...

Rethinking the Crusades - William Urban

We encourage our history students to venture beyond the memorization of facts and concepts. We should do the same by periodically rethinking the meaning of critical moments in the past. The time is ripe for a reassessment of the Crusades in light of our present concerns. There are four plausible directions this reassessment will take.  Read more...

Roman Catholicism - Fr. John Hardon, S.J.

Not the least difficulty in writing about Catholicism is the problem of isolating the subject. The history of the Catholic Church is so closely woven into Christian civilization that the one cannot be told fairly without the other.  Read more...

Roman Cruelty, Christian Purity - Mike Aquilina

It was Christian morality, and the evident love of Christian families, that gradually converted the Roman Empire.  Read more...

Russia, Communism, and the Future of the World - Fr. Robert J. Fox

Spanish Civil War: 75 Years Later - Victor Gaetan

On July 17, Catholic churches in Spain marked with sadness and prayer the 75th anniversary of a brutal, convulsive, three-year conflict. For the Catholic Church, the Spanish Civil War was a low point in a century with a lot of lows.  Read more...

Status: Inquisition in the Catholic Church - BENJAMIN D. WICKER

To assess the Inquisition properly, we must distinguish between the principle which undergirded it, and the actions of those responsible for implementing the principle.  Read more...

Survival of the Faithful - Mike Aquilina

When Emperor Constantine legalized Christianity in AD 312, there were already many millions of Christians in the empire. What was their life like? In one sense, it was no different from the lives of their pagan neighbors. In another sense, their faith made all the difference in the world.  Read more...

The 'Edict of Milan,' 1,700 years later - George Weigel

The "Edict of Milan," whose milleseptuacentennial (so to speak) is being marked this year, wasn't an edict and wasn't issued at Milan.   Read more...

The 1,400 year-war - George Jonas

Schoolboys in my native Hungary used to recite an old ditty. It conjured up emotions ossified in the seams of time.  Read more...

The Age of Persecution - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

The Catholic Church has been persecuted in every period of her history. However, the first three centuries of the Christian era are commonly known as the Age of Persecution because they show how promptly and aggressively the Church's enemies came to fulfill Christ's prediction to His followers, "If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you."  Read more...

The Battle of Tours - Raymond Ibrahim

When Charles Martel defeated the Muslims in 732, he changed the course of history.  Read more...

The Battle over the Crusades - Robert P. Lockwood

The Crusades, of course, are a far more complicated series of events in history than the anti-Catholic statements of early Protestant historians would suggest. The Crusades should be understood within the context of the times and by their reality, rather than through the myths created for purposes of propaganda.  Read more...

The Battle that Saved the Christian West - Christopher Check

Americans know that in 1492 Christopher Columbus "sailed the ocean blue," but how many know that in the same year the heroic Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella conquered the Moors in Grenada?   Read more...
