The Catholic Historical Review is the official organ of the American Catholic Historical Association. It is the only scholarly journal under Catholic auspices in the English-speaking world devoted to the history of the universal church. It publishes articles, review articles, book reviews, and lists of current periodical literature received in all areas of church history.

Mission Statement
Founded in 1915, The Catholic Historical Review (CHR) is a quarterly journal owned by The Catholic University of America Press and later adopted as the official organ of the American Catholic Historical Association. With an international readership and a global array of contributors, the journal publishes significant, original, and preferably archivally based articles in English on topics related to the history of various lived Catholic experiences and their intersections with cultures and other religious traditions over the centuries and throughout the world. In addition, CHR publishes reviews (single, fora, essays, and articles) written by experts of important books in the field, lists relevant articles that appear in other journals, and includes the section “Notes and Comments” containing news about the Association and other items of interest to readers. Any scholar may submit a manuscript, which is subjected to a rigorous double-blind evaluation.
