The New Catholic Encyclopedia Supplement 2010 focuses on two themes: the Church in modern history and the new Saints and Blesseds. The timeframe of modern history runs from the year 1500 through 2009, with an emphasis on papal reactions to various events such as the American Revolution, World War II, and the War in Iraq. Also included are important themes such as Jewish-Catholic relations and the legal history of Church-State relations in the United States. Biographies of significant historical figures such as Mussolini, Stalin, Charles de Gaulle, and John F. Kennedy round out the historical coverage. The second theme incorporates 200 biographies of Catholics beatified and canonized, chiefly by Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. The biographies of these saints and blessed frequently relate to the theme of modern history due to connections with events such as the Spanish Civil War and the anti-Catholic persecutions in Mexico during the 1920s. In all, 525 peer-reviewed, signed entries offer both updates to past NCE articles along with a wealth of new entries.

  • Most of the Beatified are new entries.
  • "Association Copies" Appendix lists books by significant people who have owned them.

"This is a comprehensive and timely guide to the old and new challenges and direction of the worldwide Roman Catholic Church at the start of the third Christian millenium." -- ARBA (2002)


"A useful reference 'workhorse,' and this updated content - especially in the area of science - is sorely needed. This resource is recommended for all academic libraries and large public libraries."--Online Journal of the American Theological Library Association December 2009
