Beyond Ricci: Rare Books from the Jesuitana Collection at Boston College
A searchable website that provides scholars and researchers access to books containing historical narratives, maps, correspondence and musical compositions in five languages that depict life in China in early modern history and the East-West exchanges initiated by the early Jesuit missionaries.
Among the many notable digitized items from the rare book collection are a 1735 translation of a French encyclopedia of China; an extensively detailed 18th century atlas; melody lines from the Chinese Imperial Court that were transcribed by Jesuits in the mid-18th century; and a translation of Confucian texts by the Jesuit missionaries that represented the first introduction of Confucius to the Western world.
The website focuses on books from the Jesuitica Collection by or about Jesuit missionaries including Matteo Ricci, Philippe Couplet and Alvaro Semedo, as well as Roman-based Jesuits Christopher Clavius and Athanasius Kircher, who made use of the information sent back by the missionaries in China. It was written by Jeremy Clarke, who selected the books and images from the library’s collection of 2,500 volumes, all of which were published prior to the order’s suppression in 1773.

18thConnect is a collaborative initiative headed by scholars at the Universities of Illinois, Miami-Ohio, and Virginia to develop a robust infrastructure for providing a comprehensive research environment for scholars working on the literature, history, the fine arts, and philosophy of the long eighteenth century (1660-1800). It works in partnership with NINES, directed by Jerome McGann at the University of Virginia, to offer scholars access to a wide range of cutting-edge, on-line resources in eighteenth-century studies. 18thConnect mediates between commercial vendors supporting these bibliographies and digital archives and the community of scholars working in eighteenth-century studies in order to draw on the collaborative expertise of the community in the updating and correcting these resources, effectively preserving their integrity.

This pdf lists the inventory of the archival fund, covering the years 1580-1823, containing 446 volumes, or 25.50 running meter.
"Chile - Jesuits of America. The documentary cultural heritage of the Jesuits of America Fund under the custody of the Archivo Nacional de Chile contains documents produced by the Jesuits as well as inventories of their vast properties. It includes account books, royal orders, correspondence, reports and abundant information on religious, educational and economic activities. The Fund is indispensable for the study of the continuity, in Spanish America, of the work of the Society of Jesus and the vast network of schools and missions that educated both the elite and the indigenous populations they evangelized. The information contained in over 128,000 pages is intrinsically associated with the history of the West and of the vast Spanish Empire of the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries. The material is divided into eight sections corresponding to one country each: Chile, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Several other countries are represented with smaller volume of documentation: the Antilles, Spain, Philippines, Panama, and Venezuela. The documentary Fund is a unique testimony to the intricate network of influence and interactions between the old and the new continent. "

Among the most ancient holdings of Budapest's University Library are those remnants of the primitive book collection of the Hungarian Jesuitical University of Nagyszombat, now known as Trnava in Slovakia. Contained in this collection are volumes from several 16th century Jesuitical settlements in Hungarian territory not subdued by Turks following the battle of Mohács in 1526, transdanubian Hungary and Transylvania, only partially independent from the Ottoman Empire. The history of the Jesuitical educational institutes in these areas overlaps with the complex political and religious affairs of the region. The recovery of some 17th century catalogues and a study of provenance notes contained in the books themselves has permitted the realisation of a databank of this material, remarkably important for the history of Hungarian culture.

This collection, on loan to the Utrecht University, hosts literature related to jansenism, the "oud-katholieke kerk" and other churches related to them. The collection holds ca 3.000 volumes printed before 1801. These collections equally holds a lot of anti-jansenist books and pamphlets, a number of which are of interest to jesuitica researchers.

- L-Poland, Cracow, Society of Jesu Scientific Library
This library is housed in the Cracow college. A separate section, the so-called: Provincial Library was created within the Writers Library. In 1929, Father Stanislaw Bednarski (1896-1942) took upon himself to gather all old prints of all Society's chapter houses (with the exception of Chyrów), thereby creating the Malopolska Province of the Society of Jesus The collection consists of nearly 20,000 (30,000 volumes) of valuable Polish and foreign prints. Among others: a part of the Jozef Kalasanty Szaniawski's book collection (1764-1843), the books of old Jesuit Libraries in Austria, many rare old prints from Polocko, legal theses from old German universities, not to mention many jesuitica. In 1980, a section of manuscripts and drawings was created. Undoubtedly, an extremely valuable part of the Writers Library is the archival section of photocopies and microfilms regarding the history and the legacy of the Jesuits in Poland. These originate mostly from Roman Archives of the Society of Jesus (Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu ARSI). Some manuscripts from the archive of the South Polish Province of the Society of Jesu, as well as other manuscripts from Polish archives and non-Jesuit libraries have been secured at this collection. Microfilms of personal files of Polish Jesuits stored at libraries in Austria, Sweden and Latvia complement this collection.

JESUIT WORKS (religious)
Preface dated 1637.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 60 [SC 4002]. Cover has ms. note in Portuguese and dedication to William Thurston by P. Andre Xavier. This
copy is more complete than the Douce copy, having preserved its original covers and IHS frontispiece; it is also printed on luxurious gold-flecked
paper. After examining copies in Paris and Rome, Yuming Sun (Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri) said "Sinica 60 is the best (and
most precious) of all extant copies". YS.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Douce Chin.d.6. This copy was brought to Europe by Fr. François Noël, S.J. and was lodged in a Jesuit residence in the
Southern Low Countries (Lille, possibly). After the suppression of the Society of Jesus in 1777 it was auctioned and entered the private
collection of Frans Korneel Cuypers de Rymenam in Brussels. This collection was auctioned in 1802 and the copy was acquired by Francis
Douce. It passed to the Bodleian in 1834 along with the rest of his collection. NG.
按: Illustrated life of Christ by Portuguese Jesuit Giulio Aleni. Ills. of exceptional quality.
存: 目錄. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 61 [SC 4003]. Inscription as on Sinica 60.
按: This is the index only to 聖經直解 (the gospels for Sundays and the main festivals) tr. by the Portuguese Jesuit Emmanuel Diaz.
Title at beginning of text is 孟士表先生辨敬錄. Has 金能堂 in lower 版心.
Has three prefaces, the last dated 崇禎壬午.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 56 [SC 3996]. Cover has ms. note in Portuguese on title & author.
按: Treatise on Christianity by the Portuguese Jesuit Joao Monteiro.
JESUIT WORKS (secular)
Preface dated 萬曆甲寅.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 65 [SC 1960 (G.17)].
按: Work on gnomonics by the Italian Jesuit Sabatthinus de Ursis.
Perhaps the first edition of this work. AD. 周希令's preface lacks characters in lower 版心. After 王應能's 刻天文略題詞 there is
繼刻有表度說簡平義說幾何天文諸書. Also, there are 4 more plates before the main text, possibly being the earliest Chinese representations of
European dials. SY.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 66 [SC 1953 (G.9)].
From different blocks throughout, this is the more common edition of this work, and is perhaps the second edition. AD. Has 刻天文略題詞 by 王應能
dated 萬曆乙卯. 自序 also has this date. 周希令's preface has 旌德劉光暘刊 in lower 版心.
存: 全. 一冊. Bodleian Library, Sinica 67 [SC 1960 (G.16)]. The covers are shorter than the text-block, and the front cover bears the printed label
幾何原本第六卷. The cover bears the Golius catalogue no.16, "Philosophia Chinensium, cum fig.", but Bernard changed this description to "Liber
Geographicus Chinensis, cum fig." It is possible that the cover did indeed contain the text-block of 幾何原本 in the time of Golius, and that it
subsequently became detached and was erroneously stitched on to this fascicle; Bernard, noting the discrepancy, may therefore have changed the
description to a subject which vaguely matches the illustrations. 按: Ptolemaic astronomy by the Portuguese Jesuit Emmanuel Diaz.
存: 全. 一冊. British Library, Or.74.b.6. From the official papers of Thomas Hyde. Inscribed: "Phases lunares Sinico-Tartarice descriptae, viz. an account
of an eclipse as it appeared in China, printed in the Chinese and Tartar languages answering to each other column-wise, printed by Father Verbiest
late Professor of Astronomy in China. This tho small in bulk, is a great Rarity, it being the only thing of this kinde now in England. 1700."

NOTE: [This is an excerpt of a] document [that] has been put together over a period of several decades. The original intention was simply to list all the Chinese books that were in the Bodleian Library by the end of the 17th century, many of which were imported as curiosities from Chinese communities in Southeast Asia by the Dutch East India Company at the very beginning of the century, and sold in Amsterdam. Often, they were split up, so that fascicles of the same copy can now be found in two or more different libraries. The late Professor Piet van der Loon estimated that the Bodleian Library has as much as a quarter (the largest single portion) of what may be termed this "Amsterdam corpus".
Now, the list is serving as the basis for a survey not only of the entire corpus, but of all the Chinese books that were in Europe before the close
of the 17th century. A number of scholars have added their discoveries and observations to it. Info: David Helliwell

Remarkable Catholic theological library collection in the U.S. Founded in 1869 at Woodstock College outside of Baltimore, it was located in New York City from 1969-1974 and then moved to Georgetown University, Washington, DC. The library contains approximately 190,000 volumes and has been housed as a separate collection in the Joseph Mark Lauinger Library on the Georgetown University campus since 1975. Its rare book collection of over 17,500 titles is an outstanding theological collection of 15th through 19th century counter-reformational and American theological works. In 2002, the library began to make available on its web site a number of interesting Jesuit texts, including selected letters and instructions of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the works of John Courtney Murray, S.J. Not all Woodstock resources are currently electronically visible on Georgetown University's on-line catalog, GEORGE. These resources can reliably be retrieved only by using the conventional card catalog in the Woodstock Library.
- L-Vatican archives
The Vatican Secret Archive [...] contains the documents concerning the central government of the Catholic Church. It is called "secret" because it is the private archive of the pontiff. He is its sole owner, establishing its norms and deciding whether to open it for consultation.
Today, it can be consulted through the entire pontificate of Pius XI, meaning up until 1939. The next section to be opened, the one dealing with the pontificate of Pius XII, will give free access up until 1958, but a wide selection of documents from the years of the second world war has already been public for some time.
- L-Vatican Library
The new website gives access to the catalogs of the works kept in the library. The main new development is that in addition to the catalog for printed works, there are now also catalogs for manuscripts and the archives. For now, it contains a limited amount of information. But it has already been supplemented – for the manuscripts accompanied by complete descriptions – with a selection of images freely available for view.

Michael Boym (1612 or 1614 - 1659) was a Polish missionary, Jesuit. During his journey to China he visited the coast of Mozambique (1644), in his days called Cafraria. His description of two Portuguese factories -- Sena on the Zambezi river and Mozambique Island -- is one of the most interesting and oldest Polish accounts of Africa. It is illustrated with five water-colours and two linedrawings by his own hand. The manuscript entitled "Cafraria, a P.M. Boym Polono Missa Mozambico 1644 Januario 11" is kept at the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu in Rome under the signature Goa 34-I, ff. 150-160. The text has never been edited in a scholarly way.

While these texts contain relevant information about the nature and internal development of the science of mechanics, they also clarify the more contextual issue of the status of science in the Catholic world between Galileo and Newton.

- M-Missionaries and mandarins: Jesuits in China
Rome not only collected the books from many foreign cultures; in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries it became the center of missionary enterprises that spanned the world. In China, Jesuits like Matteo Ricci and Adam Schall von Bell performed an incredible task of translation and interpretation. They learned the language; they made converts, some of high rank; and, in order to impress the cultivated Chinese elite with western forms of knowledge, they translated into Chinese the classical western science of cartography and the radically improved astronomy of Galileo. They also argued to their western superiors that Chinese classics had a core of values and tenets that matched those of Christianity. Eventually the Jesuits' openness to China led them into trouble; but for the first century and more of their mission, they did a remarkable job of bringing western forms of knowledge to China and Chinese forms of thought to the West. The Vatican preserves remarkable materials from both sides of this cultural exchange.

This article by Franz Obermeier is about the iconography of the first Argentinian imprint, an edition of Juan Nieremberg's "De la diferencia entre lo temporal y eterno" in Guarani, printed in the Jesuit reducciones in Paraguay 1705. These reducciones, Jesuit missions in nowadays Argentine and Paraguay, were villages controlled by Jesuit fathers in which the Indians, mostly Guarani, were instructed in religion, arts and crafts. In 1705 the Jesuits installed a printing press. Under their supervision, the Nieremberg edition was printed by the Guarani Indians. With more than 40 copperplate engravings it is a masterpiece of early South American printing and the earliest surviving book printed in Argentine.(PDF-German)

- RC-project Pia desideria
The Religious Emblem Tradition in the Low Countries in the Light of Herman Hugo's Pia desideria
The development of the love emblem in the Netherlands, from c. 1600 onwards, can be seen a as manifestation of the successful literary relationship between the northern and southern part of the Low Countries. The heyday of love emblems also brought the publication of several volumes containing both emblems and songs. Hooft's Emblemata amatoria is one example (with 71 pages devoted to emblems and 73 to songs and sonnets), but also the less ambitiously published Cupido's lusthof (Cupid's Garden of Delight) of 1613. Combination volumes like these allowed for optimal social use.
In 1615 the love emblem acquired a new dimension with the publication of Vaenius's Amoris divini emblemata, a free adaptation of his previously published Amorum emblemata. Religious love emblematics was thereafter to a large extent influenced by Cats's Sinne- en minnebeelden (first published in 1618) and by Hugo's Pia desideria (1624). Hugo's Pia desideria would become the most influential emblem book published after Alciato's Emblematum liber (1531): the book was reprinted 49 times, and 90 translations and adaptations were published all over Europe.
Yet, the relationship between the profane love emblems, Vaenius's Amoris divini emblemata en Hugo's Pia desideria have never been studied systematically, although some partial efforts were made. The way in which the Pia desideria was used to help shape and form the Contra-Reformation in the South, as well as the way in which these emblems manifested themselves in the North have not been the focus of recent research. The 'Pia Desideria Project' is aiming to change this situation by publishing:
- a doctorate thesis on the position and role of the Pia desideria in the South (by Lien Roggen, supervised by Marc van Vaeck)
- a doctorate thesis on its role in the North (by Feike Dietz, supervised by Arie Gelderblom and Els Stronks, titled 'Emblematic Dynamics in the Seventeenth Century: Word, Image, Religion' )
- organizing a conference to conclude to project, focusing on related research on the Pia desideria in the rest of Europe (organized by Marc van Vaeck en Els Stronks)
