Overview

The Glories of the Catholic Church is a three-volume work, with each volume focusing on different aspects of the Church’s historical doctrine—starting with the creation of humankind and ending with the modern practice of faith. These texts also focus on the Catholic teachings of blessed prayers, original sins, and the practice of the Christian virtues. Containing excerpts from the writings of Pope Leo XIII, St. Alphonsus Ligouri, Archbishop John Ireland, and many others, The Glories of the Catholic Church is a key window to the nineteenth-century Catholic Church’s understanding of herself across the ages, the Mass and public liturgies, and the Gospel.

In Logos, these volumes interconnect with the other resources in your library, bringing you instant access to cross-references, linguistic and theological dictionaries, and articles on related topics.
