Reference sources for Catholic biography comprise a large number of works, some very old and famous. The works listed in this section, however, represent less than one-third of the biographical materials in the entire work since there is a separate section for the lives of the saints (A205-A244) and for religious orders (E170-E264). General encyclopedias should not be overlooked as a source of biography (A85-A141), nor should the literature section of Chapter III which contains a list of biographies of authors (C88-C118).
