From the 1930s through the 1950s, Oxford Book Company produced a series of educational books called the “Oxford Visualized Texts”, encompassing topics from History and Government to Chemistry and Biology. How fortunate we are that they decided to include this Visualized Church History among their series! Collaborating with a group of talented Catholic art students, Sister Mary Loyola Vath managed to create in this volume a memorable Church History text for the upper grades. With charts, diagrams and cartoons to illuminate the text, she manages to present several complicated topics with unusual clarity.
First published in 1942, our reprinted edition of this classic includes the 1959 and 1962 updates that bring the reader up to the events just preceding the Ecumenical Council of Pope John XXIII.
