Description

Established in 1949, the University of Notre Dame Press is the largest Catholic university press in the world, and a scholarly publisher of distinguished books in a number of academic disciplines. The Press publishes approximately fifty books annually and maintains a robust backlist in print. Located on the University of Notre Dame campus, the Press is a publishing partner with numerous university departments, programs, centers, and institutes. Through these collaborations, the Press extends the reach and reputation of the University while fulfilling its mission to advance intellectual exploration and knowledge. The Press’s publications are overseen by an editorial board comprised of scholars from a variety of university departments. New titles are approved by the board after a rigorous process of peer review.

The Notre Dame Press Collection is a collaboration with the University of Notre Dame Hesburgh Libraries to make UNDP backlist titles available through CurateND, the Libraries’ institutional repository. The Notre Dame Press Collection will allow members of the broader Notre Dame community to have free access to all the books available in the collection. The collection will continue to expand as more backlist titles are digitized and through the publication of new books. This collection demonstrates the mutual commitment of UNDP and the Hesburgh Libraries to disseminate innovative, influential, and enduring scholarship to the broadest possible audience.

  • Author(s):
    Brenna Moore
    Abstract:

    In early twentieth-century France, a vast network of artists, writers, and religious seekers were drawn to Roman Catholicism’s elaborate panoply of symbols centered on suffering. A preoccupation with affliction dominated the movement now known as the French Catholic revival, or the renouveau catholique—considered a watershed in the history of the modern Catholic Church and the “golden age” of French Catholicism. In Sacred Dread, Brenna Moore examines the life and writings o…

  • Author(s):
    Robert P. Kraynak
    Abstract:

    Do Christianity and modern liberal democracy share a common moral vision, or are they opposed and even hostile to each other? In Christian Faith and Modern Democracy, Robert Kraynak challenges the commonly accepted view that Christianity is inherently compatible with modern democratic society. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Kraynak argues that there is no necessary connection between Christianity and any form of government and that, in many important respects, Christianity is weakened by …

  • Author(s):
    Kenneth P. Serbin
    Abstract:

    Serbin also describes the conservative modernization of the clergy, effected through seminary education, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Emphasizing discipline, the seminaries aimed to mold a new kind of priest-moral, isolated from politics and social entanglements, and, above all, obedient and celibate. However, the social, cultural, and religious upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s led students to reject the seminary. Seminarians worked to form a national union, and many …

  • Author(s):
    Paul J. Wadell, C.P.
    Abstract:

    Friendship and the Moral Life is not simply a theoretical argument about how moral theology might be done if it took friendship more seriously. Rather, the book exhibits how without friendship, our lives are morally not worth living. The book begins with a consideration of why a new model of the moral life is needed. Wadell then examines the ethics of Aristotle, who viewed the moral life as based on a specific understanding of the purpose of being human, with friendship being an important f…

  • Author(s):
    Gilbert C. Meilaender
    Abstract:

    In Faith and Faithfulness Gilbert C. Meilaender suggests that Christians should not try to develop an autonomous ethic; neither, however, need they deny the common ground that exists with those who stand in other traditions. He then discusses human nature as creaturely, sinful, and justified–using these categories to think about such topics as the relation of humans to their environment, the meaning of personhood, and the meaning of original sin.

  • Author(s):
    Steven A. Long
    Abstract:

    Analogia Entis: On the Analogy of Being, Metaphysics, and the Act of Faith is an intellectually rigorous and systematic account of Thomas’s teaching regarding the analogy of being. Steven A. Long’s work stands in contradistinction to historical-doctrinal surveys and general introductions, retrieving by way of an interpretation of Aristotle and Aquinas the indispensable role that analogy of being plays for metaphysics and, consequently, for theology. In his later writings St. Thoma…

  • Author(s):
    Manuel Paul López
    Abstract:

    The poems in Manuel Paul López’s The Yearning Feed, winner of the 2013 Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry, are embedded in the San Diego/Imperial Valley regions, communities located along the U.S.-Mexico border. López, an Imperial Valley native, considers La Frontera, or the border, as magical, worthy of Macondo-like comparisons, where contradictions are firmly rooted and ironies play out on a daily basis. These poems synthesize López’s knowledge of modern and contemporary literature wit…

  • Author(s):
    Alfredo Mirandé
    Abstract:

    In Jalos, USA, Alfredo Mirandé explores migration between the Mexican town of Jalostotitlán, Jalisco, and Turlock, California, and shows how migrants retain a primal identity with their community of origin. The study examines how family, gender, courtship, religion, and culture promote a Mexicanized version of the “American Dream” for la gente de Jalos. After introducing traditional theories of migration and describing a distinctly circular migration pattern between Jalos and Turlock, Mirandé…

    Paulinus Ikechukwu Odozor, C.S.Sp.
    Abstract:

    Fr. Paulinus Odozor, C.S.Sp., offers a comprehensive survey of developments in moral theology since the Second Vatican Council. In this useful new book he discusses the call of the Council for the renewal of moral theology and the role the Council itself played in this renewal. Odozor also explores the various issues and controversies which have marked the discipline in the past forty years. The dramatic changes and developments in moral theology during this time period rival any in the histo…

  • Abstract:

    The nineteen authors in this collection recognize that one characteristic of globalization is the movement not only of goods and ideas but also of people. The crossing of geographical borders confronts Christians, as well as all citizens, with choices: between national security and human insecurity, between sovereign national rights and human rights, between citizenship and discipleship. Bearing these global dimensions in mind, the essays in this book focus on the particular problems of immig…

  • Abstract:

    For business to flourish, society must flourish. In today’s global economy, business serves the common good not only by producing goods and services but also by reaching out to the many who are not even in the market because they lack marketable skills and the resources to acquire them. Sustainable Development: The UN Millennium Development Goals, the UN Global Compact, and the Common Good contains twenty-two essays that document the work of Western companies, working through the UN Glo…
