Aristotle and Christianity
2016 1-4955-0508-1
This monograph is the closing work in a series of ten titles by Dr. Paul Berry. The collection began with an initial study, The Christian Inscription at Pompeii. This work traced the line of cultural, philosophical and theological inheritance that extends from the philosophy or Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) to the theology of Thomas Aquinas (1224-1274 A.D.)

Aristotle versus the Atheists. On the Existence of God and the Immortality of the Soul
2009 0-7734-4899-3
This work argues for the restoration of Aristotelianism to the college curriculum to countervail the prevailing focus on modernism and to counteract the twenty-first century proliferation of atheist tracts.

Bobbio Missal 700 A. D.
2010 0-7734-1351-0
This study examines the basis for the union between the Latin language and Christianity. In the presentation of the case, 100 manuscript pages were selected from the oldest complete Latin Mass Book, the 7th century document known as The Bobbio Misal. A photo reproduction of each of the 100 folio pages discussed is presented across from a modern typeface transcription with a English translation at the bottom of the page.

Correspondence Between Paul and Seneca A.D. 61-65
1999 0-7734-8166-4
This monograph on the correspondence between Paul and Seneca contains facsimile reproductions of the fourteen letters. The delineations are based on two Latin manuscripts of the mid-9th century. Each reader, then, is able to arrive at an independent judgment regarding the aesthetics of these penmanship examples from the Middle Ages. Scriptural authorities, both in the 19th and 20th centuries, have regarded A. D. 61 as the year of Paul's arrival in Rome for his trial before Nero. The correspondence is dated from that time forward until A. D. 65, when both Paul and Seneca died under the hand of Nero.

Geography- De Situ Orbis A.D.43
1997 0-7734-8558-9
Pomponius Mela wrote the first systematic geography in Latin literature, datable to 43 A.D. This translation contains a facing page reproduction of the the typeset 1493 edition (Venice, Hermolaus Barbatus) of Mela's work. The Latin text casts considerable light on the Roman mind of the 1st century A.D.

Latin Language and Christianity
2004 0-7734-6530-8
This monograph establishes the directional bearing which Latin has given to the Church through each successive age from the 1st century to the 20th. Lingua Latina has served as nothing less than the transport vehicle of Christianity itself. So densely has history woven the strands of Latin into the texture of Christianity, that any attempt to detach the language is to remove the backing from the tapestry. The conclusion of the monograph will indicate that any attempt to detach the faith from this groundline, so historically valid, would amount to nothing less than a departure of the Church from its magnetic north.

Outline History of Rome
2006 0-7734-5710-0
A chronological account of the years and the events of the Roman Commonwealth from the founding of the city in 753 B.C. to the Code of Justinian in A.D. 534. The yearly listings are printed in bold numerals and serve as a rapid locator for the searcher. The annual headnotes contain citations that attach the entry to supporting vouchers in classical literature. Yet, the binding theme of this work is the universal magnetism of the Roman language. No age – whether the Regal Period of the kings or the Republican Period of the consuls or the Imperial Period of the emperors – stood outside the tidal draw of Lingus Latina.
