Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Since 1967, the New Catholic Encyclopedia, cited by Library Journal as one of the top 50 reference sources of the millennium, has been a standard in public, academic and high school libraries worldwide, Prized for its scholarly presentation of persons and subjects related to Catholicism and the humanities, the Encyclopedia is the first place you turn when your users have questions on topics such as abortion, divorce, cloning and reproductive technology. Thomson Gale, together with The Catholic University of America, is proud to announce a new and updated edition of this multivolume set--the first new edition in more than 30 years. The Catholic Church, while maintaining continuity with its past, has opened a new dialogue with the world s cultures and developments in science and scholarship. At the same time, it has undergone extensive changes in missionary outlook, liturgical practice and church discipline. This revised edition reports on both the old and the new, featuring contributions from hundreds of scholars from all over the world, under the guidance of Catholic University of America s Reverend Berard Marthaler, O.F.M. and Thomson Gale. Among the 12,000 entries in the Encyclopedia are articles on theology, philosophy, history, literary figures, saints, musicians and much more. In addition to the hundreds of new, signed articles on a wide variety of topics, this new edition also features biographies of contemporary religious figures; thousands of photographs, maps and illustrations; and completely updated bibliographical citations. The 15th volume is a cumulative index to the entire encyclopedia. N° de réf. du libraire

Synopsis : The first edition of this reference work, called the Catholic Encyclopedia, was published around the turn of the 20th century, with the last revised edition appearing in 1967. This new edition includes the best of the previous entries - many completely revised and updated - as well as new entries, written by subject experts, covering the latest topics of interest. Many thousands of articles are biographical profiles of the people who make up the history of the Catholic Church.

From Booklist: New Catholic Encyclopedia (NCE) was first published in 1967 as an update to the Catholic Encyclopedia, which first appeared in 1907. Four supplements to NCE have been published over the intervening years, the latest in 1995. Not simply an encyclopedia of Catholicism, although it certainly addresses Catholic doctrine and the history of the church, NCE "includes information about persons, institutions, cultural phenomena, religions, philosophies, and social movements that have affected the Catholic Church from within and without."

Entries are alphabetically arranged, signed by the scholar(s) who wrote or revised them, and augmented with excellent supplemental bibliographies, which have been updated for this second edition. Each volume begins with a color plate, and there are black-and-white illustrations and see references throughout. The index volume plays a critical role because users likely will not know that cloning, for example, is discussed in the entry Human genome.

Use of the 1967 edition in concert with the supplemental volumes was unwieldy, so integration was certainly in order. This second edition "updates and incorporates the many articles from the 1967 edition and its supplements . . and adds hundreds of new entries." But 18 volumes are now 14, so clearly some editing has taken place. Entries have been shortened. The discussion of the hymn Stabat Mater has been cut in half, reflecting changes in its liturgical use today. Some entries are gone entirely, such as the excellent article on Black theology in one of the supplements. Brief mention is made of the movement and its leading exponent, James Cone, in the second edition's entry African American Catholics in the United States (history of). New to this edition is an entry for Womanist theology, a type of theological reflection grounded in the experience of African American women. Some entries have been expanded to include more current information. The article on Afghanistan, the Catholic Church in now mentions the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and U.S. military action there over the past year or so. Others aren't as complete. The entry for Stein, Edith (Teresa Benedicta of the Cross), St. fails to mention the controversy surrounding the 1998 canonization of the Jewish-born Carmelite nun who died in Auschwitz and the resulting strain on Catholic-Jewish relations. Finally, some entries have been practically rewritten. Homosexuality is no longer equated with narcissism or thought of as a disorder. Homosexuals are no longer called inverts or deviates.

The second edition of New Catholic Encyclopedia is less a revision of an earlier version than a new work entirely. Multivolume encyclopedias serve as a snapshot in time of current thinking on a variety of issues. By including, excluding, abbreviating, or enhancing entries, the editors are expressing what they believe to be of importance vis-a-vis the Catholic Church at the start of a new millennium. In addition to matters Christian in general and Roman Catholic in particular, this second edition offers Catholic thought on more universal subjects such as democracy, justice, and the self. For this reason alone, academic, public, and many high-school libraries should acquire it. RBB
