Website Review: The Social Agenda

A review based on: http://www.thesocialagenda.org


Students, teachers, and all those who seek a better knowledge of the social doctrine of the Church will find on this website a collection of the central statements of the Roman Pontiffs from a range of texts, including papal encyclicals, apostolic letters, and Conciliar documents, on matters relating to politics, economics, and culture.

The selections are arranged thematically according to the significant subject areas of Catholic social doctrine. Under each subject heading, the quotations appear in pedagogical—as opposed to chronological or magisterial—order, with each subject area opening with a quotation that explains the issue at hand.

The website is an online version of The Social Agenda: A Collection of Magisterial Texts and is a publication of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. The book may be printed, downloaded as a pdf file or purchased. The site is available in in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian and Polish.
