Downside Abbey Press

The Benedictines are one of the greatest scholarly orders of the Catholic Church and number some of the greatest scholars in the history of Western Civilisation.

The Monastic Community of Downside has continuously produced books from its inception in 1606, until the present day.

Until the 1960s Downside Abbey Press publications were physically produced by monks, on site. Nowadays, titles are written and edited within the monastery before being printed externally. All profits from books sold help to fund the work in local parishes, future publications, and development of the school. Click here to find out more.
