.- Sophia Institute Press has announced the selection of Catholic author and publishing veteran Stratford Caldecott as Editor.

Sophia Press founder John L. Barger, in an e-mail to CNA, said he was “delighted” at the news of Caldecott’s selection by Sophia Institute President Jeff Nelson.

Caldecott will be responsible for strengthening, broadening and deepening the line of Catholic books published by Sophia.

A former student of philosophy and psychology at Oxford, Caldecott became a Catholic in 1980. A one-time senior acquisitions editor at Routledge, he joined HarperCollins to become Senior Liturgical (religion) Editor and then moved to T&T Clark.

“T&T Clark helped me to found the Centre for Faith and Culture in Oxford in 1994,” Caldecott explained in a press release. “My wife and I also started the journal Second Spring – at first as an 8-page supplement in Catholic World Report during the Decade of Evangelization with the help of Fr. Fessio; then as an independent journal in 2001.”

He has since joined the Editorial Board of the Catholic Truth Society. In addition to being editor of Second Spring journal, Caldecott has been an editor of Communio and The Chesterton Review.

The author of a book on Catholic social teaching, he has also written “The Seven Sacraments: Entering the Mysteries of God” and a book on Catholic fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien called “The Power of the Ring: The Spiritual Vision Behind the Lord of the Rings.”

Sophia Institute Press will assume responsibility for the journal Second Spring and will increase its output from nine books in 2008 to 36 in 2009.

Sophia Institute Press has sold over 200 titles and nearly 2.5 million books in the past 25 years. Last year the publisher entered into an agreement with St. Thomas More College of Liberal Arts to become its publishing division.
