A literary and religious monthly Catholic magazine, published by the press of the University of Notre Dame du Lac, Indiana.
Founded 1875 with the financial aid of Empress Eugenie of France, it was edited from 1875 to 1929 by Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.; present editor, Eugene Burke, C.S.C.
It has had the singular distinction of being the fireside Catholic magazine, always devotional and scholarly and so judicious and eirenic in its criticisms that its genial ex-editor will be always regarded as mentor of Catholic editors as well as their dean for so long a period.
No other Catholic periodical in the United States has done more to bring out Catholic writers.
