Data Chronologica

The reference work Data Chronologica Originis et Evolutionis Regionum [et] Provinciarum is an essential guide for the study of the documents of the New Society.

The archive of the New Society is organized geographically according to the various Provinces. Regarding the documentation of a particular Mission, or Region, or Vice-Province, it is necessary to establish to which Province it belonged, in order to search under the relevant Province.

The Catalogs too are organized by Province. Thus this reference work (Data Chronologica) is also necessary in order to facilitate research in the Catalogs – see the project to digitalize the Catalogs of the New Society.

The Data Chronologica shows the evolution of the Provinces, Missions and Regions, and gives the source from which the information is taken (generally AR – Acta Romana Societatis Iesu, or Cat., referring to the Catalog of the relevant Province).
