The Catholic Herald

The Catholic Herald, the leading Catholic weekly newspaper, joins Exact Editions today as the 45th title in our shop. It is a full broadsheet and has an archive approaching 250 issues. For the first six weeks the publisher is offering free access to the whole archive, for all-comers. So there are plenty of things on which you can do research. We usually pick out a few nuggets, so here are some items that caught my attention in a brief browse.

  • A scrumptious recipe for slow-baked lamb. I once ate a meal cooked by Timothy Gardner and it was very good.
  • With its extensive archive, this paper required a way in which searches could be ordered by first or last.
  • Also a way in which the user can jump to the issues of a specific year eg 2003 or 2005.
  • For a moment of reflection read about Oscar Romero.
