Description The lists of bishops produced in Eubel's Hierarchia catholica medii aevi... ab anno 1198 and Gams' Series episcoporum ecclesiae catholicae still represent the most comprehensive tool for studying the prelates of the Church from the Early Church to the Reformation. National Fasti-projects are supplementing and enhancing these two works with greater detail and information on office-holders in individual bishoprics. Other prosopographical work has taken place on members of individual religious orders, on members of universities and commentators on set-texts at the schools.

The Europa Sacra project aims to integrate as many of these resources as possible into an interlinked, searchable whole. The first phase is the creation of a section Pontifices et Curia Romana and a Series Episcoporum which involves the provision of Eubel and Gams online in a searchable format.
