Product Reviews

beautiful anthology Catholic Times This Oxford anthology is... not only a major event in publishing, but a rich and welcome resource... The editors have put us in their debt by providing so much to surprise and delight, and deepen our appreciation of a rich inherited tradition Eamon Duffy, The Tablet This volume brings together a large number of inspirational texts ... The putting together of this anthology has obviously been a labour of love. ... Anyone who wants a thumbnail sketch of the inner story of the English Catholic literature would do well to read in their totality the three historicaloverviews which introduce the main sub-divisions of the book. Aidan Nichols, Catholic Herald
