The Daughters of Pola
by John Mason Neale

Daughter of a noble Roman family, Agnella had heard tell of the foul practices of the Christians. What good Roman wouldn’t hate such a vile sect? When Diocletian declared that all must sacrifice to the immortal gods or be punished, Agnella’s father, Marcus Acilius Dolabella, præfect of Histria, was quick to put the emperor’s command into effect, little suspecting that his own daughter's actions would provide seed for the burgeoning Christian Church.

The American Martyrology
compiled by Fr. Frederick George Holweck and Claudio R. Salvucci

Is the name Bl. Lucas Tristany familiar to you? How about Ven. Solanus Casey? Or Ven. Theresa Dudzik? Or Servant of God Gwen Coniker? The American Martyrology is a catalog of national sanctity which assists the faithful to remember those with a special connection to the United States who have died with a reputation for holiness, The Martyrology encourages us to "private devotion toward the Servant of God and the spontaneous spreading of his reputation of holiness or martyrdom and of intercessory power."

The Fragmentary History of Priscus
Attila, the Huns and the Roman Empire, AD 430-476

translated by Prof. John P. Given, PhD

"This is a magnificent work. It is logically organized with appropriate comments added to the translated fragments to ensure clarity and a continuous story. The author is intent on emphasizing Priscus's unique voice. In this he succeeds remarkably. Given the fragmentary nature of Priscus's work, this is no mean feat. The author's writing style is clear and lucid, and will greatly appeal to a non-specialist audience." More...

Angels in Iron 
by Nicholas C. Prata

"In addition to being an exciting action/adventure yarn and quite a page-turner, Angels in Iron is valuable as a miniature history lesson as well....This is a book that belongs on the bookshelf of every Catholic man, should be read by every Catholic boy (11 or older, I would say), and stocked by every Catholic school library."

Welcome to the Arx Publishing web site...

Arx is a Latin word meaning ‘fortress’ or ‘citadel’. Arx Publishing is a small press seeking to give a voice to authors whose books uphold traditional Catholic values and promote the Culture of Life. Titles published under the Arx imprint represent a mix of genres including historical fiction, high fantasy, and poetry. While some of our books do not contain obvious Catholic content, they all explore some aspect of spiritual and moral conflict in a way that is not hostile to Church teaching.

At present, Arx has a full pipeline of new book projects in the works and is not seeking unsolicited manuscripts.

Our scholarly imprint, Evolution Publishing, furthers the study of American history and language by republishing and distributing long out-of-print primary source material.

Series include The American Language Reprint series, The American Language Reprint Supplement series, The Massinahigan series and The Annals of Colonial North America series.

Evolution also republishes out-of-print works on ancient and medieval European languages and history, including
The Christian Roman Empire, The Fontes Mediaevalium series, The Languages of Classical Antiquity series and The Languages of the Middle Ages series.
