Catholic Ideas for a Secular World

Series Editor: O. Carter Snead

The purpose of this interdisciplinary series is to feature authors from around the world who will expand the influence of Catholic thought on the most important conversations in academia and the public square. The series is “Catholic” in the sense that the books will emphasize and engage the enduring themes of human dignity and flourishing, the common good, truth, beauty, justice, and freedom in ways that reflect and deepen principles affirmed by the Catholic Church for millennia. It is not limited to Catholic authors or even works that explicitly take Catholic principles as a point of departure. Its books are intended to demonstrate the diversity and enhance the relevance of these enduring themes and principles in numerous subjects, ranging from the arts and humanities to the sciences.

ReFormations: Medieval and Early Modern

Series Editors: David Aers, Sarah Beckwith & James Simpson

ReFormations: Medieval and Early Modern interrogates and challenges the ways in which the academy has divided the study of early English literature and its history into two separate, almost incommensurate realms, medieval and early modern. The series is reforming this practice by publishing a range of literary, historical, and cultural works that will move easily across old divisions.
