Over 200,000 bibliographic citations to Catholic books, book reviews, and journal articles from more than 160 Catholic magazines. Includes both scholarly and popular material. Use the print version to find articles published before 1981.
Many (but not all) of the most important Catholic news and opinion publications are indexed in either the Catholic Periodical Literature Index (CPLI) or the ATLA Religion Database (ATLA).
Over one million bibliographic citations to journal articles, essays in books, and book reviews in the field of religion. Covers all aspects of the major world religions, but excludes most Catholic journals (which are indexed in the Catholic Periodical and Literature Index).
It is possible to search the Catholic Periodical and Literature Index and the ATLA Religion Database at the same time: when you are using one or the other index, click on the blue “Choose Databases” tab at the top of the webpage, place checkmarks against both indexes, and then click on the “Continue” tab.
