The Catholic Record Society was founded in 1904, and through its work and publications makes available to scholars and a more general readership a wide range of sources relating to individuals and ecclesiastical institutions in the British Isles in the period after the Reformation. Its flagship journal, British Catholic History, is published by Cambridge University Press.
British Catholic History acts as a forum for the most innovative, vibrant, transnational, inter-disciplinary scholarship resulting from research on the history of British and Irish Catholicism at home and throughout the world. It contains peer-reviewed original research articles, review articles, and shorter reviews of works on all aspects of British Catholic history from the 15th century to the present day. Central to its publishing policy is an emphasis on the multi-faceted, national and international dimensions of British Catholic history.
