The Jesuit Online Necrology is a free, 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 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 and includes interactive maps and data visualizations answering questions focused on the lives of these men.
The Jesuit Online Necrology project is currently in beta. The editors of the Jesuit Online Necrology welcome comments, corrections to records, suggestions for new content or features, and general feedback from users at firstname.lastname@example.org.
