Reviews of The Catholic Encyclopedia

From the moment the first print run of the The Catholic Encyclopedia became available, positive reviews of the work started to come in. Here are but a few coetaneous reviews:

"Not a word can be said in disparagement of the literary character of the work nor of its high scholarship; in both these respects it will stand comparison with the best non-sectarian encyclopedias. Its articles exhibit great learning and great lucidity, and many of them must be rated as of very large importance."
-- New York Times, Saturday Review of Books, June 20, 1908

"One of the most powerful influences working in favor of the truth."
-- Hilaire Belloc

"The greatest triumph of Christian science in the English tongue."
-- The Dublin Review

"A model of reference works."
-- Saturday Review, London

"A thorough and learned enterprise."
-- Athenoeum

"An intelligent laity is the prime need of the Church today, in America. One book, the summary of thousands, I especially recommend, THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA."
-- Archbishop Ireland
