Archives and Library

On the grounds of the Jesuit General Curia in Rome are located the Archives of the Society of Jesus ARSI (Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu).

ARSI does not hold all Jesuit collections that scholars might seek. For example, the Fondo Gesuitico dei Manoscritti (Jesuit manuscript collection) is held by the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale Vittorio Emanuele II, and by the Archivio di Stato, Rome. The Vatican Archives also has considerable holdings relating to the activities of Jesuits.

Some ARSI materials for North and South America may be consulted on microfilm in St Louis University, MO, USA:
