Complementing previous supplements, including "Science and the Church" (2009) and "Modern History and the Church" (2010), Fastiggi (What the Church Teaches About Sex) brings together the scholarship of over 240 contributors who profile artists, writers, and performers with Catholic backgrounds or connections. Expanding beyond the traditional Western-centric scope, entries on African, Asian, and Mesoamerican subjects are also incorporated. Consistently engaging and elegantly written, alphabetized entries are subtitled, cross-referenced, and studded with direct quotes and textual citations. Each closes with its author's name and affiliation. With significance extending well beyond religious concerns, this set will prove valuable to any humanities collection.
