The bull Sollicitudo omnium ecclesiarum of 7 August 1814 restored the Society of Jesus
Hiberniae Catalogs for the years of the Roothaan generalte (1829-53)
"God has blessed the Society with an incomparable fund of documents which allow us to contemplate clearly our origins, our fundamental charism."
Pedro Arrupe SJ
"Increasing interest in Jesuit history during the last two decades reveals the importance of our archives for understanding many dimensions of not only our own history but also Church and global history during the past five centuries…it is certainly gratifying, humbling and encouraging that so many people who are not Jesuits take advantage of our archives and study the Society’s past."
Adolfo Nicolas SJ
