Anyone with a basic understanding of Latin knows how much of a need there is for an up-to-date ecclesiastical dictionary of the Church's lingua materna; that is, her official language. Thanks to Latin scholar Leo F. Stelten, that dictionary is now available! Approximately 17,000 definitions make up this precise corpus of ecclesiastical vocabulary.

Professor Stelten has put to use his years of experience teaching Latin in compiling this concise reference book. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin includes the definitions with the common meaning of Latin terms found in Church writings. Entries cover Scripture, Canon Law, the Liturgy, Vatican II, and the early Church Fathers. It is perfect for theology students as well as for those seeking to improve their knowledge of Ecclesiastical Latin. An appendix also provides descriptions of ecclesiastical structures and explains technical terms from ecclesiastical law. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin has already been widely praised for its serviceability and indispensability in both academic and Church settings. Leo F. Stelten is Professor of Classical Languages at Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio.
