Biography

 Charles G. Herbermann
Source: books.google.com/books
After Herbermann graduated from the Jesuit college of St. Francis Xavier in New York, he became a member of the faculty there. This post he held for eleven years. In 1869, when he was only 29 years old, he accepted a position on the faculty of the City College of New York, where he taught Latin and Latin Literature (1869-1914) and served as librarian (1873-1914). Herbermann's first important advance in American Catholic scholarship came in 1905, when he was chosen editor-in-chief of the Catholic Encyclopedia, a post which he held until the completion of the monumental work in 1914.

This volume belongs to a sixteen-volume encyclopedia set that, as the encyclopedia’s preface indicates, was designed “to give its readers full and authoritative information on the entire cycle of Catholic interests, action and doctrine.” Unlike other Catholic encyclopedias that came before it, this one does not focus so narrowly on internal Church matters alone. Instead, it, among other things, succinctly explains Catholic doctrine while contrasting it to that of Protestantism, and it documents the accomplishments of Catholics throughout the centuries, including poets, artists, scientists, and public officials. The encyclopedia remains here in its original form, having never gone through a process of updating since its publication starting in 1907.
