The Life of Saint Ambrose
A Translation of the Vita Sancti Ambrosii by Paulinus of Milan

translated by Sr. Mary Simplicia Kaniecka

Ambrose of Milan is one of the towering figures of the late 4th century AD: a fierce opponent of heretics, admonisher of emperors, voluminous writer, worker of miracles, and the spiritual father of other great saints. This biography of Ambrose was written by one of the deacons who served under him: Paulinus of Milan. Paulinus was encouraged in this biographical effort by none other than Saint Augustine of Hippo, Ambrose's most famous disciple. More...

I Am A Christian
Authentic Accounts of Christian Martyrdom and Persecution from the Ancient Sources
compiled and edited by Anthony P. Schiavo, Jr.

Christians of today face questions that would have seemed absurd to our ancestors. Did Jesus exist? Isn't the New Testament just a fairy tale? Aren't the accounts of the early martyrs just fables? These accusations gain traction because the average person today has practically no knowledge of the Church's ancient past. I Am A Christian: Authentic Accounts of Christian Martyrdom and Persecution from the Ancient Sources aims to remedy this deficiency by providing a collection of the earliest and most trustworthy eye-witness accounts from Roman antiquity.

Three Years behind the Guns
by John B. Tisdale

Originally written in 1908, Three Years Behind the Guns is an amusing, gritty look at life aboard the flagship Olympia at a time when the United States was on the cusp of becoming a great power. Though a memoir, the author writes with all the youthful exuberance of the age and finds himself, much to his surprise, with a front-row seat to the naval battle at Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War.

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.

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."
—Latin Mass Magazine
