European Jesuit Libraries Provenance Project

The European Jesuit Library Provenance Project's purpose is to find patterns and trends in Jesuit book ownership from the founding in the 16th century until the suppression in the 18th century. This page is for the community to see the educational practices of the Jesuits. We will pay special attention to markings and annotations that can show us how often the books were used. With this Flickr site we hope to answer questions about teaching as a Jesuit. What were they suppose to teach versus what books did they actually use? What was teaching like for Jesuits? What made these books 'Jesuit'? How did usage correlate with education?

Since we are looking for patterns, images will appear in multiple albums. If you notice a pattern, say something! We look forward to your feedback.
