Welcome to H-Catholic, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-Catholic is devoted to promoting the discussion and study of the history and culture of Catholicism.

H-Catholic is currently looking for new editors to take an active, leadership role in developing new resources and features for the field. We are looking for editors, bloggers, contributors, as well people interesting in building open access resources such as syllabi collections and databases of research archives. If you have ideas for H-Catholic, we H-net has the technical expertise to build it. Please contact Patrick Cox at vp-net@mail.h-net.msu.edu if you are interesting in lending a hand.
