Fun Facts from the Notre Dame Press Archives

In celebration of our 75th Anniversary, we are sharing fun facts and trivia from the Notre Dame Press vault! Did you know we have these gems in our backlist?

Notre Dame Press was founded in 1949, and we have worked hard to keep as many books as we can in print. Our oldest book still available for purchase today is The Bible and the Liturgy by Jean Daniélou S.J., published in 1956. That’s just seven years after the foundation of the Press!

A leader in spirituality studies, John S. Dunne had taught more Notre Dame students than any other person in the University’s history at the time of his death. Additionally, he wrote over 20 books on theology and the spiritual life, many of which were published by Notre Dame Press, including his last work Eternal Consciousness.

Flannery O’Connor and Robert Giroux, by Patrick Samway S.J., examines Flannery O’Connor’s personal and professional relationship with her editor, Robert Giroux. But in addition to his work with O’Connor, Robert Giroux was editor for no less than seven Nobel Laureates, including Notre Dame Press author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn!

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and Elie Wiesel aren’t the only Nobel Laureates on the Notre Dame Press list! Henri Bergson, author of The Two Sources of Morality and Religion, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927.
