QUARTERLY (CCQ)

Mission Statement

Connor Court Quarterly (CCQ) is a periodical, non-subscription magazine whose focus is on the history, culture and religion in the Western Tradition. By the term Western Tradition, we mean that distinctive mix of languages, formal institutions (especially universities), cultural practices and achievements, and philosophical and religious outlooks which had their genesis in ancient Greece and Rome, their gradual development in the history of Europe, and their subsequent transmission to the New World after the Age of Discovery.

We believe that the achievements of this Tradition are now under attack from many quarters with negative implications for the maintenance of a common moral order, for a shared understanding of what it means to be human, and for a similar shared understanding of the limitations of human achievement. The Quarterly also hopes to be a vehicle for the transmission of those areas of culture which have enriched the Western mind since the time of Homer.

Whilst this may be interpreted as a broadly conservative outlook, the editorial board of CCQ believes that the focus of this new magazine sets it apart from what might be termed ‘standard’ conservatism. Today, a great deal of what passes for conservative thought is actually a species of liberalism. It has its genesis in the European Enlightenment and is generally dismissive of that whole period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the Reformation. Popular conservatism is also often aggressively secular in outlook and, while it may pay lip service to religious belief, it often sees religion as obscurantist. For CCQ, the term Tradition is inescapably linked to religion, making it much more than simply a set of customs or habits. Moreover, it is only within the bounds of an intact Tradition (with its attendant religious beliefs) that any moral rules can be validated.
