BUILDING A GLOSSARY FOR CATHOLIC DECISION-MAKERS

September 19, AD2013 1 Comment

\"John

Here is an alphabetized list of words and phrases that I find helpful during a decision-making process. I have drawn the words from many sources and will continue to add terms I find helpful and that you may want to suggest. Below the list is a separate set of words from The Syntopicon of The Great Books of the Western World with links to related Wikipedia articles that provide reasonable starting points for further research.

Sources I have worked with include, but are not limited to: Merriam-Webster online dictionary; Adler\’s Philosophical Dictionary; Catholic Dictionary: An Abridged and Updated Edition of Modern Catholic Dictionary (online version here); The Catholic Encyclopedia.
