Whether you pick up this book for yourself or to hand to your teen, you won't be disappointed." More...

by Michael T. Cibenko

On the Deaths of the Persecutors
A Translation of De Mortibus Persecutorum by Lucius Cæcilius Firmianus Lactantius
translated by Lord Hailes [David Dalrymple]

Called the Christian Cicero by readers ancient and modern alike, Lactantius's On the Deaths of the Persecutors is a work of considerable historical import, containing details about the Roman Empire of the early 4th century that are found nowhere else. In this unique work, Lactantius created a hybrid of history and apologetics, making a case for the truth of the Christian religion based on the fates of those emperors who had been the most egregious persecutors of Christians.

Angels in Iron 
by Nicholas C. Prata

Welcome to the Arx Publishing web site...

Arx is a Latin word meaning ‘fortress’ or ‘citadel’. Arx Publishing is a small press seeking to give a voice to authors whose books uphold traditional Catholic values and promote the Culture of Life. Titles published under the Arx imprint represent a mix of genres including historical fiction, high fantasy, and poetry. While some of our books do not contain obvious Catholic content, they all explore some aspect of spiritual and moral conflict in a way that is not hostile to Church teaching.

At present, Arx has a full pipeline of new book projects in the works and we are not seeking unsolicited manuscripts.

Our scholarly imprint, Evolution Publishing, furthers the study of history and language by republishing and distributing long out-of-print primary source material. Our popular The Christian Roman Empire series publishes English translations of primary sources dealing with the early Church and Later Roman Empire. Other series focusing with ancient and medieval European studies include The Fontes Mediaevalium series, The Languages of Classical Antiquity series and The Languages of the Middle Ages series.

Evolution also publishes several series focusing on American history and language. These include The American Language Reprint series, The American Language Reprint Supplement series, The Massinahigan series and The Annals of Colonial North America series.
