The New Oxford Review is an orthodox Catholic magazine that explores ideas concerning faith and culture. With a paid circulation of over 12,000, the NOR is published 10 times a year (monthly except for combined January-February and July-August issues). Published under the patronage of St. Vincent Pallotti, the NOR is read on every continent in the world.

The New Oxford Review was founded in 1977 as an Anglo-Catholic magazine in the Anglican tradition, taking its name from the 19th-century Oxford Movement. Inspired by the Movement’s leading luminary, John Henry Newman, and the dynamic, thoughtful papacy of John Paul II, the NOR converted to Roman Catholicism in 1983.

The New Oxford Review has earned a reputation for addressing head-on the full range of issues confronting Holy Mother Church, and doing so with unswerving loyalty to her Pope and Magisterium. Over the years some of the leading Christian thinkers of our times have contributed to our effort to shine the light of faith in an increasingly hostile secular world, including Walker Percy, Sheldon Vanauken, Thomas Howard, Msgr. George A. Kelly, Bobby Jindal, Fr. Stanley L. Jaki, Peter Kreeft, Avery Cardinal Dulles, Germain Grisez, Fr. James V. Schall, John Lukacs, and many others. The NOR continues to present the brightest minds in Catholic journalism today. Each issue is packed with intellectual vibrancy and zeal for Christ.

The New Oxford Review: At the nexus of faith and reason.

The NOR is a nonprofit religious organization and has 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service.
