The Catholic faith has inspired some of the world's greatest creative works and has been a powerful force in history from the Roman Empire to the present. Catholic writers reflect their heritage in their works; and generations of readers have continued to appreciate the Catholic literary tradition. This encyclopedia covers the vast realm of Catholic literature from its origins to today. Included are alphabetically arranged entries on more than 70 major works from around the world. Special attention is given to women writers and to writers from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds. Included are entries on such authors and works as St. Augustine's Confessions; Catherine of Siena's Dialogue; Dante's The Divine Comedy; Sandra Cisneros' The House on Mango Street; J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings; and Muriel Spark's Memento Mori. Each entry is written by an expert contributor and includes a biography of the writer; a plot summary of a major work; an extended critical discussion; an overview of the work's critical reception; and a selected bibliography. The entries give detailed attention to particular works and explore their relation to Catholic thought. A selected general bibliography concludes the encyclopedia.
