Michael Walsh has written or edited over a dozen works on the history of the Church, both ancient and contemporary. He was until recently, Librarian at Heythrop College, University of London, UK.
"[Walsh] writes with fluency and, relying heavily in a wide range of contemporary sources, creates a series of pleasing biographical sketches."
