IHS Press was founded in 2001 and is the only publisher dedicated exclusively to the Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church and its Aristotelian-Thomistic philosophy. As such, IHS Press specializes in works of Catholic Social Thought that are faithful to the Traditional Teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.
IHS Press believes that the key to the restoration of Catholic Society is the recovery and the implementation of the wisdom that our forefathers in the Faith possessed, so fully, less than a century ago.
At a time when numerous ideologies were competing for supremacy, these men articulated with precision and vigour, and without any apology or compromise, the only genuine alternative to prevailing currents of thought which are value-free yet bureaucratic Progressivism on the one hand, and the rehashed Laissez-Faire free-for-all of Conservatism on the other. That alternative is the traditional Social Teaching of the Catholic Church.
Catholic Social Teaching offers the solutions to the political, economic, and social problems that plague modern society; problems that stem from the false principles of the Reformation, Renaissance, and Revolution, and which are exacerbated by the Industrialization and the secularization of society that has continued for several centuries.
Defending, explaining, and applying this Teaching was the business of the great Social Catholics of the last century. Unfortunately, much of their work is today both unknown and unavailable.
Thus, IHS Press was founded in 2001 as the only publisher dedicated exclusively to the traditional Social Teaching of the Church, helping Catholics of the third millennium pick up where those of last century left off.
