"Consistently engaging and elegantly written, alphabetized entries are subtitled, cross-referenced, and studded with direct quotes and textual citations. Each closes with its author's name and affiliation. With significance extending well beyond religious concerns, this set will prove valuable to any humanities collection."
--Library Journal, October 2011
"The main focus and concentration of its planners and contributers was to cover the areas of art, music, and literature, but readers will also find much more than that in the areas of issues, events and topics relating to the Catholic Church and its role in today's society. A highly recommended reference resource."
