The paper gives a survey of the early volumes of the journal, issued in 1889 -1906. In this journal the changes the Catholic philosophy and theology underwent due to the publication of the Papal Encyclical 'Aeterni Patris' has found their reflection. The contributions fall under several fundamental philosophical disciplines of the Neo-Scholasticism, such as epistemology, logic, metaphysics, philosophy of nature, and philosophy of religion. The paper also sheds light on the discussion, which at that time focused on the relationship between Neo-Scholasticism and positivism. The survey is given on the background of the Hungarian philosophy of that time.
