The Orthodox Catholic Review

Previously published as the organ of the Catholicate of the West from 1945-53, the Orthodox Catholic Review was revived in 2017 as an occasional internet-published journal of opinion on subjects of interest to the University and the Catholicate of the West. The editor and principal author is the University’s Dean of International Development, Professor Luca Scotto di Tella de’ Douglas. The title of the Review recalls the eponymous journal of Fr. Julian Joseph Overbeck (1820-1905), a pioneer of Western Orthodoxy.
