INDEX

Prefatory Note to Index

The following index is an English translation of the

Index Analyticus

that

appeared in the Latin typical edition of the

Catechism of the Catholic Church

,

promulgated on August 15, 1997. For the most part, this index is a literal

rendering of the Latin, with attention given to maintaining consistency

with the language of the English edition of the

Catechism of the Catholic

Church

. The

Index Analyticus

was designed to be both a general subject

index as well as a conceptual index of the contents of the

Catechism

, and

this English translation is faithful to that design. This English translation

does not participate in the approval of the Latin typical edition given in

the apostolic letter

Laetamur Magnopere

of Pope John Paul II, by which the

Latin text was approved and promulgated.
