  • Role of Catholics in public policy debates

Ten Percent Plan?

Hello all,

I am looking for reading suggestions about John XXIII's Ten Percent Plan. I'm primarily a diplomatic historian, and I am afraid that my knowledge of Catholic historiography is more limited than I'd like. Any suggestions on a comprehensive monograph (or articles) on the topic would be greatly appreciated.

Invitation to become a List Editor for H-Catholic

H-Catholic Subscribers:

We have been off-line for six months. During that time several posts were submitted whose Call for Papers deadlines passed. Also, there were announcements for conferences that have now taken place. It was therefore necessary to delete those posts in order to restart our H-Catholic discussion list. We apologize for not having been able to post those requests and announcements.

We have two List Editors, a Book Review Editor, and a List Moderator. We need four more List Editors for us to function as we have in the past.
