The first comprehensive collection of Papal Encyclicals in English. Contains the complete texts of 280 encyclicals from Benedict XIV to John Paul II. Each document is followed by a citation to the original (usually Latin) text, reference notes from the document and a bibliography of commentaries on the text. Of special value is the 82-page subject index in vol. 5. "A reference work that will be put to use by students and scholars for generations to come … truly one of its kind and is not likely to be surpassed" (Theological Studies, XLIII [September, 1982], p. 529).
