Our Project

Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France

Prime Matters exists to awaken the Catholic imaginative vision in Catholics and all people of goodwill.

We promote content that provides clear articulation of the first principles of the Catholic imaginative vision and applies them to various academic disciplines, professions, and current events.

Prime Matters is published by an editorial panel chaired at Mary College at ASU in Tempe, AZ. Prime Matters and Mary College are projects of educational outreach of the University of Mary.
