ACTA SANCTORUM Acta Sanctorum

The history of Acta Sanctorum is part of the history of the Bollandists themselves.  With the first volume published in 1643 and the latest in 1940 (the work remains incomplete) this is one of the longest, and greatest, scientific and editorial enterprises of all times.

The vagaries of history (wars, revolutions, and even the suppression of the Society of Jesus) have made it practically impossible to find a complete original edition of the Acta Sanctorum (67 volumes in-folio) for sale.

True, a private publisher did reprint the Acta at Venice between 1734 and 1760 – in part – and the Parisian editor Palmé brought out a new edition between 1863 and 1870 – also incomplete, and not without certain defects (see Synopsis of the three editions of Acta Sanctorum )

A reprint of the first 60 volumes of the original edition was published from 1966 to 1971.  Although the complete collection is not available any longer, some volumes are still available from Brepols Publishers.  The general Indices for the months January to October, the Auctaria Octobris, the six volumes of November and the Propylaeum of December are still available from the Bollandists, either in the original edition or in reprint.

Single volumes of the editions published in Antwerp (original edition, since 1643), Venice (1734-1760) and Paris (1863-1870) are also available from the Bollandists.

Acta Sanctorum Database is a complete digital version of the original edition of the Acta Sanctorum published by ProQuest and accessible online.
