Unique in its international coverage of religion, current affairs, politics, social issues and the arts, The Tablet is a weekly Catholic journal which has been reporting on events of significance for over 170 years.
Every week The Tablet provides in-depth and balanced coverage on a wide range of subjects and its contribution to topical issues is strengthened by its contributors: each issue contains the work of writers drawn from all over the world.
The complete archive, of over 8000 issues, is now available for institutional subscribers. Fully searchable and easily navigable, this is undoubtedly one of the best resources available for tracing the history of the Catholic Church and world events over the last 170 years.
