Biography of Charles de Koninck

Writings of Charles De Koninck

Ralph McInerny has been engaged for some years in the project of gathering and translating the works of Charles DeKoninck. Introducing the project, he says, "Some years ago I moved and my books got rearranged and I kept discovering old favorites and coming upon books I had never read but owned for years. One day I took down a book of DeKoninck's, and began to reread. Some hours later I sat back and said aloud, "Thank God I studied with this man.'"

The first volume of The Writings of Charles de Koninck is now in print, having been just published in 2008 (link opens in a new window). Read a review by Thomas Hibbs. The Second Volume in the series has also now been released in June 2009. Both volumes may be ordered at a discount from Amazon.
