May 2020: The Jesuitica Project at KU Leuven Launches New Website

The Jesuitica Project — a collaborative initiative from the University of Leuven (KU Leuven, Belgium) and the Jesuit Region of European Low Countries, the former provinces of the Netherlands and North Belgium (Flanders) — has launched a new version of its website:


The mission of the Jesuitica Project is to stimulate research into the history and spirituality of the Jesuits by making the rich collections of Jesuit books in the Maurits Sabbe Library accessible and by hosting as a virtual portal with digital tools for the research community. The Maurits Sabbe Library is home to an impressive Jesuitica book collection of almost 100,000 books. Of these, some 20,000 books printed before 1840 and more than 40,000 from the later 19th and 20th century have been properly described and catalogued. The Jesuitica Project is also working to digitize many of these titles.

In 2019, the Jesuitica Project joined with the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu and the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies to found the Jesuit Online Bibliography.
