Catholic Encyclopedia, as its name implies, proposes to give its
readers full and authoritative information on the entire cycle
of Catholic interests, action and doctrine. What the Church teaches
and has taught; what she has done and is still doing for the highest
welfare of mankind; her methods, past and present; her struggles,
her triumphs, and the achievements of her members, not only for
her own immediate benefit, but for the broadening and deepening
of all true science, literature and art -- all come within the
scope of the Catholic Encyclopedia.
