De Tijd was a Dutch language Catholic daily newspaper published from 1845 until 1974. At the end of pillarisation (religious segregation) the number of subscribers diminished drastically and the daily became a weekly in 1974.


The first edition of De Tijd was published 17 June 1845 in 's-Hertogenbosch; at this time the newspaper appeared thrice weekly. Judocus Smits (nl) was the founder and editor in chief. In 1846 De Tijd (which at that time had 250 subscribers) moved to Amsterdam, in order to attract more subscribers. It also started publishing daily.

In 1990 it merged with the Haagse Post weekly news magazine to become HP/De Tijd, a weekly news magazine.[1]
