February 12, 2021

The editorial board of the English Critical Edition of the Works of Karol Wojtyła/John Paul II (ECE) is pleased to announce the publication of Volume 1 of the series: Person and Act and Related Essays (published by The Catholic University of America Press).

This volume features an entirely new translation of the author's seminal 1969 work Osoba i czyn, along with related essays, fragments, and commentaries that were published by Wojtyła both before and after the main work. It is now available for pre-order from CUA Press.

The book includes introductions by Carl A. Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus; Fr. Antonio López, F.S.C.B., Provost/Dean of the John Paul II Institute and general editor of the ECE; and translator Dr. Grzegorz Ignatik, assistant professor of theology at the Pontifical College Josephinum and editor of manuscripts of the ECE. 

The ECE will eventually include at least 30 volumes, which will collect all known pre-papal writings (both published and previously unpublished) and a thematic selection of papal writings.

Upcoming volumes include:

  • Volume 2: Lublin Lectures and Related Ethical Essays
  • Volume 3: Toward Integral Anthropology and Ethics
  • Volume 4: Moral Theology and Catholic Social Ethics
