A Conspectus of the Collections

Priority in collection development at the Institute Library has always been given to editions of texts and archival materials and to catalogues of manuscripts held in libraries around the world. There is a special strength in medieval philosophy and theology; but the collection is also very strong in history, law, liturgy, and literature. The published complete works of every major medieval figure, as well as the great multi-volume collections on national and ecclesiastical history, are all available in the Institute Library.
