Paulist Press

Striving to stand at the intersection of faith and culture, Paulist Press is committed to publishing quality materials that:

  • bring the good news of the Gospel to Catholics and people of other religious traditions;
  • support dialogue and welcome good scholarship and religious wisdom from all sources across denominational boundaries;
  • foster religious values and wholeness in society, especially through materials promoting healing, reconciliation, and personal growth.

Paulist Press began in April, 1865, when Paulist Fr. Isaac Hecker published the first edition of “The Catholic World” magazine.

Since 1960, Paulist Press has served as a major publisher of books on theology and spirituality, expressing the Paulist Fathers’ missions of evangelization, reconciliation and ecumenism / interfaith dialogue.

Featured Title
Chagall: The Stained Glass Windows


Paulist Press recently released the English-language edition of Chagall: The Stained Glass Windows, a large, hardcover volume that celebrates the beautiful and thought-provoking stained-glass windows created by the 20th-century, Russian-French artist Marc Chagall. This “coffee table book” includes beautiful photographs of the windows as well as the stories (and sometimes spirituality) behind them.

Chagall’s windows in Metz, Saarburg, Mainz, Reims, Jerusalem, Nice, Zurich and Pocantico Hills, NY, are highlighted, along with documentation of the enormous preparatory work that went into each.
