Jesuit Catalogs Database

The Digital Scholarship Group is collaborating with the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies and the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu on the Jesuit Catalogs Database. The data in the catalogs (collected every three years from the 17th century until the present) details the lives of the Jesuit priests in their province.

This project entails creating a powerful backend for collaborators to share data in real time and a dynamic frontend to browse, search, and visualize data about priests. Users will be able to search by name, biographical information, locations, and communities, and they will be able to see information displayed in maps, timelines, and other forms of visual analysis.
