The Catholic School Manuscript Book Collection

The Catholic School Manuscript Book Collection consists of sixty-two bound manuscript volumes, mostly of academic or devotional nature. The volumes have been grouped into five series by subject matter, due to the lack of other unifying characteristics: Series I, Theology and Philosophy; Series II, Mathematics, Science and Rhetoric; Series III, History, Literature and Law; Series IV, Devotional and Religious Works; Series V, Various School Texts. Within each Series the volumes are arranged in a loose chronological progression, with the undated volumes placed first. Concessions made to storage constraints, however, have forced a few exceptions to this arrangement.

Although the Series divisions seem somewhat arbitrary, the present separation is based upon a loose hierarchy founded on the importance of the disciplines involved (using, in general, a nineteenth-century Jesuit point of view), or upon the seriousness of the particular text. This has caused some inconsistencies; for example, an Arithmetic text has been placed in the last series of School books rather than in the series with mathematics and science, because of the basic nature of the work.

For the purposes of this division, Rhetoric covers composition, oratory and general literary studies; these texts make up part of the Second Series. Strictly grammatical texts and manuscript translations, however, are found in Series III. Also in the third Series, history is used in its broadest sense and includes biography. Finally, the rather subtle division between theological and religious works attempts to separate the theoretical and doctrinal texts, found in Series I, from the polemical or apologetic works, and from rules for religious observance and prayer books. These latter volumes make up Series IV.

Because of the diverse areas covered by the volumes, in subject matter, time period, place of origin and provenance, extensive indices follow the descriptions to aid the researcher.
