The G. K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture at Seton Hall announces the publication of its Special Croatian Issue, Volume 45, Nos. 3 & 4, of its widely recognized journal, The Chesterton Review.
Professor Dermot Quinn, Associate Editor of The Chesterton Review, spoke on Chesterton and the journal's relationship with Croatia:
Chesterton had profound things to say about the Christian roots of European civilization. 'We have lost our national instincts,' he once wrote, 'because we have lost the idea of that Christendom from which the nations came. In freeing ourselves from Christianity we have only freed ourselves from freedom.' Such is the theme of the latest issue of The Chesterton Review, which is devoted in a special way to questions of faith and culture in contemporary Croatia. Anyone who cares for the Christian heritage of that beautiful country will find many items of interest in its pages.
This new issue of The Chesterton Review includes an introduction by Dermot Quinn alongside pieces by G. K. Chesterton and Maurice Baring. Articles within this issue have been written by Father Ian Boyd, Dermot Quinn, Stjepo Bartulica, Ivo Džeba, Marta Mestrović Deyrup, Ana Walczuk, and Geir Hasnes. Book reviews included have been produced by Daniel Strait, Allan Carlson, and James McGlone. Film reviews by Jorge Iglesias are also within this issue. Lastly, this edition of The Chesterton Review contains numerous "News & Comments" items from a variety of sources, as well as letters and photo galleries
About the Chesterton Review
Edited by Fr. Ian Boyd, C. S. B., The Chesterton Review is the journal of the G. K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture and has been widely praised for both its scholarship and for the quality of its writing. It was founded in 1974 to promote an interest in all aspects of Chesterton's life, work, art and ideas, including his Christian apologetics. It includes a wide range of articles not only on Chesterton himself, but also on the issues close to his heart in the work of other writers and in the modern world. It has devoted special issues to C.S. Lewis, George Bernanos, Hilaire Belloc, Maurice Baring, Christopher Dawson, Cardinal Manning, the Modernist Crisis, J.R.R. Tolkien and fantasy literature, and Polish culture. It is published twice annually (two double issues). In response to the revival of G. K. Chesterton in the Hispanic world, The Chesterton Review has published an annual issue in the Spanish language since 2006 and a Portuguese language supplement since 2009. In 2010, The Chesterton Review published its first issue in French and in 2011 its first issue in Italian.
