BHLms (Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina manuscripta)
This database combines the resources of the repertory of Latin hagiographic texts known as Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina(BHL) with those of the catalogues of hagiographic manuscripts published in the series Subsidia hagiographica and Analecta Bollandiana. Entering the Latin name of a saint, one has access to his “dossier” (the various texts relating to him, as listed in BHL). A specific text can also be found by entering its BHL number. A list of all the manuscripts containing that text is then provided. The manuscripts can be ordered either in the alphabetical order of the places of conservation, or in chronological order.
BHLms is the fruit of a collaboration between a team headed by Prof. Guy Philippart of the University of Namur (M. Trigalet, Fr. De Vriendt, P. Bertrand, B. Legrain) and the Société des Bollandistes.
BHLms is hosted by the Faculty of Philosophy and Letters of the Université Catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve).
The project has been illustrated in Analecta Bollandiana, 116 (1998), 250-252.
