The University of Notre Dame Press is excited to release our Fall 2020 Catalog, featuring 25 new books, on a wide range of subjects, and 3 paperback editions of some of our recently published best-selling titles.

Connelly, C.S.C., congregation archivist for the Congregation of Holy Cross; and French political theorist Pierre Manent, among others.

Notre Dame Press, the largest Catholic university press in the world, publishes academic and general interest books that engage the most enduring questions of our time. We believe in the power of research to advance knowledge and impact lives, and of our books to connect scholars, experts, students, and readers in order to encourage intellectual exploration and enrich conversations on campus, across the country, and around the world. Through reviews, scholarly citations, and translations, our books extend the reach and reputation of the University.

The following books this season have ties to Notre Dame:
