Jesuit Online Bibliography

Learn More


The Jesuit Online Bibliography is a free, collaborative, multilingual, and fully searchable database of bibliographic records for scholarship in Jesuit Studies produced in the 21st century. In the bibliographic tradition of the Society of Jesus, this database provides the records, abstracts, subject categories, and direct links to books, chapters, articles, reviews, dissertations, and others materials related to the study of Jesuit history, spirituality, educational heritage, and pedagogy.

The Jesuit Online Bibliography is a collaborative effort among Jesuit research centers and archives as well as scholars and publishers. The editorial oversight is shared between the project's three founding institutions -- the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu, the Jesuitica Project at KU Leuven, and the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College. These institutions are each represented on the project’s board of directors, and each appoints one associate editor.


A global network of voluntary contributors regularly provide records to the Jesuit Online Bibliography, and other individual scholars, librarians, and publishers are also encouraged to upload records of recent scholarship, thereby helping to build a valuable and expanding tool for the field of Jesuit Studies. With the support of the project's collaborating institutions, this resource is available in Open Access. Users also have the option to create a free account to save searches and to bookmark results.


The project’s thousands of bibliographic records in nearly 50 languages are all aggregated within the search capabilities of the Portal to Jesuit Studies.
