Each chapter covers a period of about 100 years in two sections: "Political background" and "The Church." Each of these is subdivided by certain general topics such as Catholic life, doctrine, discipline, practice and by other topics suitable to the period. It has been praised for its "excellent bibliographies by periods of largely Catholic sources" (American Historical Association, Guide to Historical Literature [New York, Macmillan, 1961] , p. 67). Many appendixes and a detailed index add to its reference value.
