Leo Stelten has put to use his years of experience teaching Latin in compiling this concise reference book. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin includes approximately 17,000 words with the common meanings of the Latin terms found in church writings. Entries cover Scripture, Canon Law, the Liturgy, Vatican II, the early church fathers, and theological terms. This volume will prove to be an invaluable resource for theological students, as well as for those seeking to improve their knowledge of ecclesiastical Latin. An appendix also provides descriptions of ecclesiastical structures and explains technical terms from ecclesiastical law. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin has already been widely praised for its serviceability and indispensability in both academic and Church settings.

As a devaut Roman Catholic, i believe it invaluable to be able to read the official bible of the Roman Catholic Church: The Latin Vulgate. The Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin completes a regular Latin dictionary such as Cassell's (which i strongly recomend for everyday Latin). Everyday latin dictionaries do not contain words and terms neccessary to understand Church Latin. I strongly recommend the Dictionary of Ecclesiastical Latin fo all who wish to read Roman Catholic documents.
