1916. Revised with additions by T.B. Scannell. Volume I of II containing Abbot-Immaculate Conception. The work here submitted to the public is intended to meet a practical want which has long been felt among English-speaking Catholics, the want namely, of a single trustworthy source of information on points of Catholic doctrine, ritual, and discipline. All existing English works of a similar character, such as Hook's Church Dictionary, Blunt's Dictionary of Theology, Blunt's Dictionary of Sects, etc., were compiled by Protestants, and it is scarcely possible to turn over ten pages in one without meeting with some more or less open attack upon Catholicism. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty, faded or difficult to read. Volume 2 ISBN 0766193802.
