The Chesterton Review announces the publication of a Christopher Dawson Special Issue

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. –December 2023 – The G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture at Seton Hall University announces the publication of a Christopher Dawson Special Issuevolume 49, nos. 3 & 4, Fall/Winter 2023—of its widely recognized journal The Chesterton Review.  


The latest volume of The Chesterton Review is a special issue devoted to the life and legacy of Christopher Dawson, the most important English Catholic historian of the twentieth century. Dawson, like Chesterton, was a convert. He was also, like Chesterton, a powerful advocate for cultural and spiritual renewal in the face of growing secularity and the religious decline. An eloquent champion of the need for Europe to rediscover its Christian roots, he played an influential role in Catholic educational thinking on both sides of the Atlantic but especially in the United States. The new issue of the Review is excited to publish for the first time a recently discovered Dawson essay. It also brings together new writing on Dawson from the best scholars working in the field, including articles by Joseph Stuart, Adam Schwartz, James Lothian, Karl Schmude, and David Bonagura. With its usual complement of Chesterton items and its wide range of letters, News and Comments, it is sure to be of interest to Dawson specialists and Chesterton generalists alike. —Dermot Quinn, Editor, The Chesterton Review

The issue contains an Introduction by Dermot Quinn, a Christmas poem by Frances Chesterton, an unpublished essay by Christopher Dawson edited by Joseph Stuart; articles by Joseph Stuart, Adam Schwartz, Dermot Quinn, Anthony Gannaio and Garrett Potts, David Bonagura, Colby Aderhold and Tony Tibbets, James Lothian and Christopher Altieri. As with all issues of the Review, there is also a good selection of Chesterton’s own writing, along with Book and Film Reviews, as well as many News and Comments items, well as Letters and Photo Galleries.
