Exactly what the Church teaches and has taught. And also what she has done and is still doing for the welfare of mankind; her methods, past and present; her struggles, her triumphs, and the achievements of her many members, not only for her own immediate benefit, but for the broadening and deepening of all science, literature and art. All these come within the scope of this Encyclopedia. It differs from the general encyclopedia in omitting facts and information which are not related to the Church. On the other hand, it is not exclusively a church encyclopedia, nor is it limited to the doings of church. It records all that Catholics have done, not only in behalf of charity and morals, but also for the intellectual and artistic development of all. It chronicles what Catholic artists, educators, poets, scientists and men of action have achieved.It was designed to present its readers with the full body of Catholic teaching. The Encyclopedia contains not only precise statements of what the Church defined, but also an impartial record of various views of acknowledged authority on all disputed questions. In all things the object of the Encyclopedia is to give the whole truth without prejudice, national, political or factional. In the determination of the truth the most recent scientific methods are employed, and the results of the latest research in theology, philosophy, history, apologetics, archaeology, and all other sciences are given careful consideration.
