Our projects


• Digitising printed repertoires and handwritten card indexes. They will be made accessible online in new electronic databases and continuously updated. Two projects are underway, in partnership with Louvain university and the Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes (CNRS, Paris), allowing every Latin or Greek hagiographic text prior to 1500 AD to be cross-linked to the manuscripts and the printed editions where they can be found.

• A new, scientifically organised and presented catalogue of the saints, blessed and servants of God after 1500 CE, containing their earliest biographies as well as prime data regarding their cult and iconography.

• Specialised seminars and teaching programmes for doctoral and post-doctoral students.

• Annotated catalogue of correspondence between the Bollandists and other scholars throughout Europe in the 17th -19th centuries.
