An almost decade-by-decade treatment of the history of the Church. Volume 1 ends with the year 1453 and volume 2 covers events up to the 1950's. "If any negative criticism is in order it concerns the arrangement of the material." However, it is "an accurate readable and comprehensive survey" (Catholic Historical Review. LXIX [April, 1963], p. 100). Each volume has a detailed subject index, and volume 2 contains an extensive bibliography. Various appendixes in each volume list popes, councils, patriarchs, and the like.
