Jesuit Online Necrology

The Jesuit Online Necrology is an open, collaborative, and fully searchable database of personal information for the more than 32,000 men who died as members of the Society of Jesus between 1814 and 1970, built in collaboration with the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu in Rome, the Institute of Advanced Jesuit Studies and the Woodstock Theological Library at Georgetown. This database provides the dates of birth, entry, and death for all the men who lived and died as Jesuits in the century and a half following the order’s restoration. It includes interactive maps and data visualizations answering questions focused on the lives of these men. The editors welcome comments, corrections to records, suggestions for new content or features, and general user feedback at

The Boston College Libraries project team collaborated on this project with the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies (IAJS).
