About this organisation


Modified by organisation

The Bollandist Society is a Jesuit research institute dedicated to the critical study of Greek, Latin, Oriental and vernacular hagiographic literature as well as to the history of the saints and their cults. Founded in the early 17th century this is one of the oldest scientific societies in the world. Our research, study, safeguard and promotion of this unique heritage is possible thanks to our specialized library of 500.000 volumes, which has become an indispensable point of reference in the study of critical hagiography worldwide.

      Why support the Bollandists?

      If we except a small subsidy from the Belgian «Fondation Universitaire» for the journal Analecta Bollandiana, the Société des Bollandistes has to sustain its activities entirely by its own means.   Maintaining the library at a level of excellence, confronting the costs of new publications and, above all, engaging in new projects is a constant challenge.

      To support the Bollandists’ activities a fund has been created by the Belgian Fondation Roi Baudouin (FRB/KBS).
