Index to Gathered Fragments

Journal of The Catholic Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania The title Gathered Fragments originated with the motto of Pittsburgh diocesan historian Msgr. Andrew A. Lambing (1842-1918) — “Gather up the fragments [of history] that remain lest they be lost” — which was taken from the Gospel of St. John 16:12 and adopted as the Society’s journal name in December 1986. Full text for past issues is available at Duquesne University’s Gumberg Library Digital Collections: Gathered Fragments.  For the most recent issues, please contact the Catholic Historical Society at
