The Publisher Morcelliana

Founded in Brescia in 1925 by a team of young catholics – Fausto Minelli, Alessandro Capretti, Mario Bendiscioli, Giulio Bevilacqua, Gian Battista Montini (the future Pope Paul VI) – the Publisher "Morcelliana" resolved to promote, since its origins, a Christian inspired culture, related to the most brilliant tendencies of modern doctrine, in an international context.
As time passed, this effort turned into a real editorial ideology, showing a special attention in Biblical Studies, Ancient Christian Literature, Spirituality, Theology, Philosophy, Religion Sciences and History.
