Although all four presses publish works in many languages, we only sell their current English-language titles. For more information, see our Jesuit Consortium page.

Are you a part of Loyola University?
No, Loyola Press is not affiliated with any university. We do not publish or print textbooks, dissertations, or scholarly materials for a specific academic institution. Loyola Press is an independent not-for-profit publisher, owned and operated since 1912 by the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus.

Why can't I access sample pages or other resources in PDF format? I have Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Some Web browsers have pop-up blocker software that treats PDF files as potential pop-ups, and some resources at loyolapress.com are provided in PDF format. If you experience trouble downloading these pages, your pop-up blocker may be the cause. You may override the pop-up blocker, however. A message bar should appear, indicating a pop-up was blocked. The message bar will provide an option to "allow pop-ups from this site," and if you choose that option, the PDFs should load properly. Please note that loyolapress.com does not allow third-party pop-up advertising on this Web site.
