This site, by the Caritas Social Action Network, presents information on Catholic Social Teaching (CST) which first emerged at the end of the nineteenth century as a response to the injustices of the Industrial Revolution and the threat of Communism. While recognising that social teaching is a lived tradition and not just a written one, the focus is on the considerable development that has taken place over the last century.

Presenting materials from the Nag Hammadi Library, a collection of thirteen ancient books discovered in upper Egypt in 1945. This immensely important discovery includes a large number of primary "Gnostic Gospels" – texts once thought to have been entirely destroyed during the early Christian struggle to define "orthodoxy" – scriptures such as the Gospel of Thomas, the Gospel of Philip, and the Gospel of Truth.
