" La Civiltà Cattolica is one of a kind "

Pope Francis

Bishop of Rome
" La Civiltà Cattolica exemplifies the Jesuit tradition of publishing long-form journalism on current affairs, culture and theology. For decades, it has been an essential read for anyone interested in what is really going on in the Vatican, in the church and in the world. "

James Martin, SJ

Jesuit Priest and Author
" La Civilta Cattolica addresses current and pressing issues alive in Church and world with a scholarship that is worn lightly. "

Gerry O’Hanlon, SJ

Irish Theologian
" La Civiltà Cattolica is an absolute must-read for all those who want to understand what happens in the thinking of the Church - in the Vatican, in global Church, and everywhere in between. "

Dr. Massimo Faggioli

Professor of Historical Theology, Villanova University
" La Civiltà Cattolica illustrates how Jesuits and their partners deploy engaged and up-to-date intellectual reasoning to report on and question current world affairs, local cultural issues, and theological debates. This journal reflects the wide interests of this particular religious congregation as well as their worldwide multilingual resources deeply rooted in local realities. The tone of its discussions combines academic requirement and accessibility for non-specialists that would benefit to all scholars. In addition to the window it provides on extremely diverse situations where Jesuits are engaged, it also reflects the ways in which the Holy See itself intends to encourage specific issues and concerns. "

Michel Chambon

Visiting Assistant Professor in Anthropology, Hanover College, Indiana
" La Civilta Cattolica was always a \"must-read” for Vatican-watchers, but it’s now a magazine anyone would want to read — it addresses a fascinating range of issues and is a reliable guide to the Francis papacy and a changing era in the church and the world. "

David Gibson

Director, Center on Religion and Culture, Fordham University
" La Civiltà Cattolica breathes fresh air into the debates of the Church, combining expert scholarship and a keen awareness of the challenges that face the Church and society. "

Fr. Timothy Radcliffe OP

Lector, Fellow, Las Casas Institute Advisory Board
" My years of teaching at the Gregorian University in Rome (1973-2006) brought me regular contacts with the staff of Civiltà Cattolica. I always found them highly intelligent and valuable commentators on religious, political, and cultural matters. I take pride in having served as supervisor for the doctoral dissertation of the current editor, Fr Antonio Spadaro SJ, and rejoice in the way the journal has flourished and is now available in many languages. I strongly recommend Civiltà Cattolica to readers everywhere. "

Gerald O’Collins, SJ

Research professor and writer-in-residence at the Jesuit Theological College in Parkville, Victoria
" In this age of “spin” and superficial journalism on church affairs, we need publications that offer context, well-grounded opinion and informed insight into contemporary questions. La Civiltà Cattolica does this in an incomparable manner. It is required reading today, as the pontificate of Francis continues to reshape the profile and witness of Catholicism around the world. "

Rita Ferrone

Journalist and author of Liturgy: Sacrosanctum Concilium (Rediscovering Vatican II)
" Now in English, La Civilta Cattolica, the highly regarded Jesuit periodical from the heart of it all, can’t be matched for its perspective, balance, and integrity. "

Rev. Donald Cozzens

Cleveland, Ohio, USA, Author of The Changing Face of the Priesthood
" La Civilta Cattolica provides a welcome avenue into better understanding the events and documents of our contemporary Church where the Gospel values are translated into actions for our missionary discipleship. "

Bishop John Arnold

Bishop of Salford
" Fearless and brilliant, La Civiltà Cattolica in English has become the must-read Jesuit publication. It tells you all you need to know that in the past two years, La Civiltà has published the two most important essays about the Church in the United States, Fr. Spadaro and Rev. Figueroa\'s analyses of the Christian right. Other journals are too timid to publish such searingly truthful essays. "

Michael Sean Winters

Journalist and Writer
" In a time when misinformation and fake news proliferates with devastating abandon, and in a time desperate for informed commentary, one could do no better than turn to LCC, a publication of established and worthy record. Theology does not thrive in a vacuum and religious studies withers when publications of consequence are ignored. LCC should never be ignored. Its expanse should be universal if for no other reason than it provides enlightened analysis on complex issues. It’s function is not decorative but constitutive of probing insight. "

Michael W. Higgins

Professor of Catholic Thought, Sacred Heart University
" The arrival of the new English language edition of the highly respected review, La Civiltà Cattolica, is a welcome development, making it more available to a wider international readership. It remains a highly reliable source of informative analysis and authoritative commentary on Vatican affairs and perspectives on faith and culture in today’s world. "

Prof. Catherine E. Clifford

Faculty of Theology, Saint Paul University
" There is an invigorating freshness to the new-look English edition of Civiltà Cattolica. Perhaps it is the seriousness with which this Jesuit run publication takes the three key words that Pope Francis recently gave it as its guide and inspiration, “restlessness, incompleteness and imagination.” Which of us would not want to subscribe to such a journal? There is surely nothing else quite like it. "

Paul Lakeland

Director, Centre for Catholic Studies, Fairfield University
" La Civiltà Cattolica brings together the very best of our Jesuit tradition—a devotion to inquiry and the common good distinguished by its rigor and dynamism—for the benefit of a global readership that includes those deeply committed to our tradition and welcomes those who might be discovering it for the very first time. "
