Catholic Commons hosts encyclopedic-type content and informational essays on topics specific to the Catholic Church. It was founded in 2006 by a professor at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. It welcomes editing by users “to develop free online resources to support Catholic identity".[1]


On January 4, 2006, John P. Workman created Jesuit.Wikia.com while on sabbatical at The Jesuit Institute at Boston College. In the fall of 2006 it was renamed Ignatian.Wikia.com,[2] and in spring of 2007 it ceased carrying advertisements and moved to IgnatianWiki.org. Steadily broadening its scope, in 2016 it became CatholicCommons.org. A Spanish version is in the incipient stages.[3]
