Abstract

Worcester himself was a history professor at the College of the Holy Cross in the USA and is now Philosophy and religion president of Regis College in Toronto. Contributors are international and reflect a cross section of Catholic and other sentiment. This encyclopedic approach (with essay-style RR 2018/123 entries from between 300 to 3,000 words in length, each with further reading, most of it in The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English language) differentiates it from the Jesuits Companion and also allows readers (most likely General editor Thomas Worcester students of theology, students in seminaries, Cambridge University Press teachers of religious studies in schools and colleges and historians working in relevant areas) the Cambridge opportunity to look up and pinpoint specific topics easily. The style and layout are clear, a list of xli 1 876 pp. entries indicates coverage at a glance, readings are ISBN 978 0 521 76905 1 (print); ISBN 978 1 108 51446 0 topical and generally accessible and there is a (e-book) helpful index. The general emphasis is largely historical, and £160 $200 (print); $160 (e-book) authoritatively and understandably so – for Keywords Christianity, Encyclopedias, History example, the wide range of countries included, Review DOI 10.1108/RR-02-2018-0042
