    • Catholic involvement in conflicts as officers, soldiers, nurses, and chaplains.
    • U.S. efforts at humanitarian aid during war: War Relief Services/Catholic Relief Services, etc.
    • The approach of the U.S. Catholic hierarchy or certain bishop(s) to particular conflicts.
    • Catholic responses to documents including Pacem in Terris (1963), The Challenge of Peace (1983), etc.
    • Catholic peace movements and activism such as the Catholic Peace Fellowship, Catholic Worker, etc.
    • Catholic conscientious objectors
    • Catholic press/magazines/newspapers and war
    • Theologians, philosophers, and intellectuals on war and peace
    • Catholics on the home front during war
