The Catholic Encyclopedia, as its name implies, proposes to give its readers full and authoritative information on the entire cycle of Catholic interests, action and doctrine.

The work is entirely new, and not merely a translation or a compilation from other encyclopedia sources.

Much attention is given to recording and preserving European cultural heritage, but action on the rural heritage and its structures and techniques has fallen far behind. There is an urgent need to understand that heritage and to carry out an inventory in the face of destruction attributable to recent agricultural techniques, rapid urban growth, and the threat of "de-farming" through shrinkage and set-aside.
