Jesuit Historiography Online

Jesuit Historiography Online (JHO) is an Open Access resource offering over seventy historiographical essays written by experts. Aimed at scholars of Jesuit history as well as the many disciplines with which it intersects, each essay in JHO provides a summary of key texts from the earlier literature, a painstaking survey of more recent work, and a digest of archival and online resources. Crucially, each essay covers both Anglophone and non-Anglophone works and devotes attention to scholarship from Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, making this survey truly global in scope. The essays represent much more than a bibliographical check-list; authors explore trends in Jesuit historiography and provide a nuanced, systematic, and in-depth analysis of what has been written—when, why, and by whom—about arguably the most significant religious order within the Roman Catholic tradition.

JHO is available in Open Access thanks to generous support of the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College.

Readership

The JHO essays offer historiographical information on a wide range of topics, including (but not limited to) Church History, Missiology, Theology & World Christianity, Global History, Hispanic Studies, Asian Studies, African Studies, Biblical Studies, Art History, Philosophy, History of Science & Medicine, Book History, Language and Linguistics, and Literature & Cultural Studies.
