They Must Never Be Forgotten: Priests and Nuns Who Rescued People From the Holocaust - Sally M. Rogow

In those times of chaos, it was extremely dangerous and difficult to organize rescue activities. The Nazi Gestapo and secret police were vigilant and quick to punish anyone who tried to save Jewish people. Aware of the terror and cruelty of the Nazi regime, the Catholic priests and nuns who engaged in rescue activities did so at the risk of their own lives.  Read more...

Those Terrible Middle Ages! Debunking the Myths – a book review - Helen M. Valois

“The Church is absolutely medieval!” How often have we heard that remark? It is meant to convey that Catholicism has not kept up with the intellectual, technological, and social advances of modernity, and is merely a throwback to those vilified centuries we’ve been taught to call the “Dark Ages.” In Ignatius Press’ new release “ Those Terrible Middle Ages!” historian Regine Pernoud demonstrates that this attitude is not only mistaken about the Church, but about the Middle Ages as well.  Read more...

To Burn and to Shine - Brad Miner

I first read In Praise of the New Knighthood, Bernard of Clairvaux’s instructions to the Knights Templar (written circa 1130), and thought it an embarrassment.   Read more...

Two Centuries and Counting: Interview with Harry Crocker III - Kathryn Jean Lopez

Like Paul Johnson, I was a journalist who'd written frequently on historical topics. I also had a definite point of view on Church history, which was that it was being hijacked for liberal propaganda with the endless stream of books like Constantine's Sword, Hitler's Pope, and Papal Sin. I wanted to respond with the real story.  Read more...

Vatican Council II and the Church in the Modern World - Fr. Robert Fox

How does one summarize an ecumenical council, such as Vatican II, that has been and is transforming Christian society and has brought more changes to the Church in a few years than during the preceding 400 to 500 years?  Read more...

Was Hitler a Christian? - Dinesh DeSouza

Were the Middle Ages Dark? - Anthony Esolen

What the Church has given the world - Father Andrew Pinsent and Father Marcus Holden

Without the Roman Catholic Church, there would be no western civilisation.  Read more...

What the Crusades Were Really Like - Thomas F. Madden

What We Owe the Monks - Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

When Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger took the name Benedict XVI in late April, observers immediately speculated as to what it meant. Papal names often carry great significance.  Read more...

What’s So Great About Catholicism - H.W. Crocker III

With its divine foundation, sanction, and mission, nothing could be more glorious than the Catholic Church. But, of course, many people — even many baptized Catholics — don’t see it that way.  Read more...

When Worlds Collide - John Julius Norwich

In all European history, there is no more stirring story than that of the long struggle between Christianity and Islam for mastery of the Mediterranean.  Read more...

Who Burned the Witches? - Sandra Miesel

The stench of their burning is with us yet. The stakes and gibbets where witches perished by the tens of thousands during early modern times still stand in popular imagination. For historians, the so-called great European witch-hunt has been a much-vexed issue, one easily contorted to suit the prejudices of every age.  Read more...

Who Invented Charity? - Thomas E. Woods, Jr.

In the early fourth century, famine and disease struck the army of the Roman emperor Constantine. Pachomius, a pagan soldier in that army, watched in amazement as many of his fellow Romans brought food to the afflicted men and, without discrimination, bestowed help on those in need.  Read more...

Who Killed Slavery? - Dinesh D'Souza

Isn't it remarkable that atheists, who did virtually nothing to oppose slavery, condemn Christians, who are the ones who abolished it?  Read more...

Who’s Who in the Reformation - Geoffrey Saint-Clair

Catholics trying to understand the Reformation sometimes complain about the wide range of Protestant churches, denominations and sects. The challenge is not as great as it seems at first glance because the tens of thousands of Protestant churches, denominations and sects trace their origins back, one way or another, either to the three major founders of the Reformation or to the Radical Reformation movement known as the Anabaptists. Understand them, and you’ll go a long way toward understanding the complex reality called Protestantism.  Read more...

Yours Is the Church of Charity - Mike Aquilina

The only reason we care about the poor is because Christianity has won ... This book is full of unbelievable statements like that. My hope is that, by the end of the book, you'll believe them all.   Read more...
