Highlights from our catalog...

by Michael T. Cibenko

"In a manner reminiscent of Clavell's Shogun, Masaru transports the reader to medieval Japan with realism that delights the senses, offering up a blend of history, philosophy and adventure. Based on events little known in the West, Masaru artfully presents the faith with a compelling synthesis of action and dialogue....This is a must-read for anyone who appreciates Japanese culture, lovers of history and philosophy, or those who simply enjoy an exceptionally well-told story."

On the Deaths of the Persecutors
A Translation of De Mortibus Persecutorum by Lucius Cćcilius Firmianus Lactantius
translated by Lord Hailes [David Dalrymple]

Called the Christian Cicero by readers ancient and modern alike, Lactantius's On the Deaths of the Persecutors is a work of considerable historical import, containing details about the Roman Empire of the early 4th century that are found nowhere else. In this unique work, Lactantius created a hybrid of history and apologetics, making a case for the truth of the Christian religion based on the fates of those emperors who had been the most egregious persecutors of Christians.

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.

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

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 we are not seeking unsolicited manuscripts.

Our scholarly imprint, Evolution Publishing, furthers the study of history and language by republishing and distributing long out-of-print primary source material. Our popular The Christian Roman Empire series publishes English translations of primary sources dealing with the early Church and Later Roman Empire. Other series focusing with ancient and medieval European studies include The Fontes Mediaevalium series, The Languages of Classical Antiquity series and The Languages of the Middle Ages series.

Evolution also publishes several series focusing on American history and language. These include The American Language Reprint series, The American Language Reprint Supplement series, The Massinahigan series and The Annals of Colonial North America series.
