Index religiosus

New eresource : Index religiosus

The Index Religiosus is a reference bibliography for academic publications in Theology, Religious Studies and Church History, indexing publications in most European languages, of international scope, and spanning Antiquity to the 20th century.

All aspects of Church History are widely covered, including political, social and economic history and relations with Islam and Judaism.  The new bibliography has as its starting point two existing bibliographies, the bibliography of the Revue d’histoire ecclésiastique and the Elenchus Bibliographicus from the journal Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses, both of which are taken by the University Library.  From January 2014 onwards, the printed versions will no longer be published in print format and are replaced by the Index religiosus.
