Journal of the American Catholic Historical Society

The oldest, continuously published Catholic scholarly journal in the United States.

In 1887 the American Catholic Historical Society began publication of a quarterly journal, the Records. In 1913, the Records was merged with American Catholic Historical Researches, a publication founded by Dr. A. A. Lambing of Scottsdale, Pennsylvania and issued by Martin I.J. Griffin. Since 1999, the journal, renamed American Catholic Studies has been published out of Villanova University under the editorship of Rodger Van Allen (Rodger.Van.Allen@villanova.edu) and Margaret McGuinness (Mcguinness@lasalle.edu), and a distinguished group of national scholars.

American Catholic Studies has won several awards in the refereed competition of the Catholic Press Association, including first and second place General Excellence Awards in the category of Best Catholic Scholarly Journal.
