A modern dictionary of Catholic terms, both common and obscure. Find accurate definitions of words and phrases.
The science of Christian doctrine. It treats the teachings of the Church systematically as a whole, and considers each article of faith in its own right and in relation to other dogmas of Catholic Christianity. It proves the doctrines of the Church from Scripture and tradition, illustrates them by suitable comparisons, and shows that they are in harmony with reason. It answers objections from philosophy and other sciences and above all deduces theological consequences from the truths of faith.
