A Church Dictionary Originally published in 1842 and written by the at-that-time Vicar of Leeds, Walter Farquhar Hook. This is an exhaustively comprehensive dictionary that details all religious teminology, doctrine, law, history, ritual and scripture. The contents focus principally on the Christian, although there is much scholarly reference to all other religions. An indispensable work of reference. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
