For Liturgy in Hagia Sophia


Prime Source World Wide Libary


The collection counts over 5,000 volumes in electronic format, in all fields of Theology. The purpose of PSWWL is to favor basic training for any theological student and to constitute a starting point and even more for Doctoral dissertations in any subject.
The reference section (dictionaries and encyclopedias) is particularly strong, featuring the classic French dictionary series initiated between 1900 and 1940:

-Dictionnaire de la Bible (with the Supplement 15 vols);
-Dictionnaire d'Archeologie Chretienne et de Liturgie (30 vols);
-Dictionnaire d'Histoire et de Geographie Ecclesiastiques (27 vols);
-Dictionnaire de Spiritualite (22 vols);
-Dictionnaire de Theologie Catholique (34 vols);
-Dictionnaire de Droit Canonique (7 vols);
-Dictionnaire des Antiquites Grecques et Romaines (10 vols).

Other important series, in English and German, are available:

-Theologische Realenzyklopadie (36 vols);
-Der Neue Pauly Enzyklopadie der Antike (15 vols);
-Reallexikon fur Antike und Christentum (20 vols);
-Lexikon fur Theologie und Kirche (10 vols);
-Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon (20 vols);
-Encyclopedia of Islam (10 vols- the most comprehensive on the topic);
-Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy (10 vols, also available as searcheable database);
-Encyclopedia of Monasticism (2 vols);
-Coptic Encyclopedia (8 vols).

Encyclopedias on Judaism, American and Protestant religions, etc are also present in the collection. So is a dictionary series on the lives of the Saints (Bibliotheca Sanctorum, Italian, 13 vols).

Regarding the Orthodox and other Eastern churches, the one most specialized collection is at hand: Orientalia Christiana Analecta (256 vols, published by the Pontifical Institute of Oriental Studies in Rome since 1926), also useful for the bibliography it contains.

Specialized bibliographical works are available, covering most of the 20th century in the domain of Patristics, Biblical studies, Church History and Liturgy.

The vital field of primary sources is represented by the Source Chretiennes collection (350 vols already on the list, the remaining 100 to be added up soon) and by the two most authoritative and complementary collections on the Church councils: that of Phillippus Labbaeus (23 vols, Venice, 1728) and of Joannis Mansi (62 vols, Florence, 1758-1798, republished in facsimile 1901-1927).

Basic- and specialist-level language manuals and studies, as well as dictionaries, are available for Greek (from classical and biblical to patristic and modern periods), Latin, Syriac, Hebrew. PSWWL contains several dictionaries, among which the Greek-Latin Stephanus dictionary (9 volumes), the Oxford Latin-English dictionary, Lampe’s “Patristic Lexicon”, and Liddell and Scott’s Greek-English dictionary.


In addition to the Source Chretiennes collection, the Patristics section contains other collections of critical editions of different Church Fathers, plus monographs, and studies.
Among these are: the Corpus Christianorum Scriptorum Latinorum database (full-text and searcheable, contains the latest critical texts of all the ecclesiastical authors of Latin language up to the middle ages), and the Patrologia Latina database, also full-text and searcheable and containing 181 volumes of the Latin Migne.
There are also: the English-language collection Ante-Nicene, Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers (38 vols), select volumes from the "Early Church Fathers" and "Fathers of the Church" collections, and from the recent "Writers of the West" series. To this add up several volumes of the Greek and Latin printed series of the Corpus Christianorum.
A Latin-Italian edition of the complete works of St Ambrose of Milan (21 vols) is a recent addition to the library.
The Eastern Fathers come in disparate editions, but they are nevertheless present. The 4th century is well represented, with critical editions of the works of Saints Basil the Great, Gregory of Nyssa and Gregory of Nazianz; St Ephraem Syrus is present in a Syriac-Latin, Greek-Latin and Latin edition (Vatican 1732-1746, 20 vols out of which 10 are available); Patriarch Photius' "Bibliotheca" and his other writings are in PSWWL in full; Sts. Maximus the Confessor and Gregory Palamas are in with several monographs and studies. Most of the monographs and studies in PSWWL deal with the Eastern Fathers.
St Augustine is another important figure extensively dealt with in PSWWL. An entire periodical (Augustinian Studies, 31 volumes, issued annually by the Augustinian Institute of Villanova University, Pennsylvania, since 1970) is dedicated exclusively to St Augustine. PSWWL features different editions of the works of Augustine, and many other studies on his era and his longlasting influence on the Western Christianities.
Another important feature are the classic Patrologies by Johannes Quasten, Berthold Altaner, and O. Bardenhewer.
An essential collection of patristic scholarship is the "Studia Patristica", in some 40 volumes containing the papers read at Patristic symposiums held mostly at the University of Oxford, and edited by different prestigious academic publishing houses in Europe.

Church History

Besides Mansi and the dictionaries mentioned above, PSWWL features K.J. von Hefele's "Histoire des conciles" (22 vols, Paris 1907), a complete collection of John Meyendorff's works, and several compendiums of Church history, e.g. Charles Poulet's "Histoire du christianisme" (5 vols, Paris 1932-).
All the periods of Church history, in both Orient and Occident, and including the cultural and political backgrounds, are dedicated one or more studies. The middle ages, a period not dealt with so heavily as with the Early Christianity, is covered by the "Dictionary of the Middle ages" (13 vols, New York 1982-1990). Heresies, from Gnosticism to Catharism and from Arianism to Iconoclasm, then the Great Schism, the Crusades and the Reformation are also covered. Byzantium and Orthodoxy are particularly stressed upon, with a follow-up in monographs on the Churches under communism.
The monographs on different modern Catholic and Protestant missions in Africa and Asia can be relevant to topics like colonialism. The development of the Catholic and Protestant churches in the middle ages and modernity, in Europe and the Americas, is another important part of PSWWL.
On the history of dogma, several manuals and collections of conciliar decisions are available. Catholic and Protestant synods and confessions of faith are also detailed.
Catholicism in particular is well represented with a few histories of the popes and councils, with collections of the papal bulls and encyclicals since the 1800's, and with an edition of the proceedings of the 1st Vatican Council published for the use of bishops. The 2nd Vatican council enjoys some first-hand monographs.
Monasticism is a topic that enjoys attention in the PSWWL, through the 2-volume Encyclopedia of Monasticism (Fitzroy-Dearborn Pub., 2000), and the studies that cover every time and place of the history of monasticism, from Ireland to Egypt and Syria, focusing on the essential commonalities of Eastern and Western monastic tradition of the first millennium. Monastic history blends with the history of liturgy, in that liturgical practices and themes provenant from the ascetical communities made their way into the public liturgy of the great cities. This development is detailed by a part of the works in PSWWL.


The theological collection covers modern trends in Western theology especially, most of which are not well documented in the Orthodox Church. All the important currents starting with the 18th century are represented, in both Europe and the Americas: the Catholic and Protestant theology of the Enlightenment, i.e. the moment of separation between theology, philosophy and natural science; the deepened breach in the 19th century between the tenets of theology and natural science, and reactions to the theory of
evolutionism: Catholic traditionalism, and the Oxford movement (within the Anglican church); at the beginning of the 20th century, such tendencies as the neo-thomism (Teilhard de Chardin, in the Catholic church) and neo-orthodoxy and theological existentialism (Karl Barth, in Protestantism) are reviewed, and after WW II, the modernist thinkers (Henri de Lubac, Yves Congar, Karl Rahner) who opened the way for the Vatican II Council with its stated purpose to adapt Christian revelation to the modern secularized societies, and for the Catholic implication in the ecumenical movement; the
Protestant world saw the emergence of form criticism and demythologization of the Bible in order to apply the Christian teachings today (Bultmann). Overall, main theological themes in 20th century are the unity of world history and salvation history, the dialogue with Marxism and the Western liberal democracy, sensing the evils in both, with an impulse to Christian action (even political) in view of eschatology, to which adds up a growing perception of the communal character of Christian faith, which leads to the
creation of the ecumenical movement. In the USA, there is impetus to social justice and to awareness of the Christian identity of churches as opposed to sect, race and class identity (the Niebuhr brothers, Paul Tillich). The last 3 decades of the 20th century in America saw the appearance of process philosophy with its emphasis on natural theology; of the issue of secularization and its positive valorization; of Black and feminist
theologies which relate to third world theologies. The most significant development has been the rise of a new evangelical theology that is staunchly anti-Communist (Fascist), which sees its role as strengthening the position of the US among the nations of the world. Emphasis on community focused theological thinking on Triadology, Christology, ecclesiology and anthropology. They are all well represented in the present collection;
triadology, in special, is covered by the most important 20th century and newer literature.

Biblical studies

The biblical section contains an abundance of resources. There are manuals and general introductory works, specific exegetical studies on the books or chapters of the Old and New Testaments, and bibliographical volumes. This literature contains all the schools of biblical interpretation of the 20th century. Histories of the evolution of interpretation are available.
Important headings on PSWWL's list are: "Biblia Hexaglotta", (in 6 volumes, it puts together the biblical texts in 6 languages: the original languages: Hebrew, Greek, Latin and Syriac, plus English, French and German); the "Biblia Patristica" series, an exhaustive multi-volume compilation of the biblical references in Patristic works; and "The International Critical Commentary" series, containing the most important works of the 20th century on every book of the Bible.


The liturgical section is covered by cornerstone studies on all the aspects of Christian liturgy: history, principles, recent views and research. The origins and early evolution of the Eucharistic liturgy and of the liturgical year, in East and West, are particularly well represented. Other sacraments, the hierurgies and liturgy of the hours are not missing either. The Orientalia Christiana Analecta collection is particularly relevant to the study of Eastern liturgy, from the Byzantine to the Armenian, Nestorian, and Coptic traditions. Putting together the bibliographical listings in OCA yields a fairly complete image of the literature on Eastern liturgies. It is, at any rate, the place to start with in any scholarly enterprise on the liturgy.
The primary sources come in the form of collections of prayers and liturgical references. 2 examples are: the "Enchiridion Euchologicum" (edited by Enzio Lodi, Rome 1979, in 2 volumes containing the places and texts in all the sources available, where liturgical references occur, from the mystery religions through Jewish sources and to Christian liturgical manuscripts and the Fathers of the Church, in all traditions - in Latin and Greek) and the "Ritus Orientalium" (2 volumes, edited by H. Denzinger and published in Graz, 1961). There is also a Greek Menaion (6 volumes, Rome 1888-1901) plus editions of some manuscripts.
The 20th century "Liturgical movement" in the Catholic church leading to the reforms of the 2nd Vatican Council, as well as their influence on Protestantism, which developed into the creation of ritually richer liturgies in the 70's and 80's, plus the establishment of Liturgical studies as an academic discipline, receive all extensive treatment in PSWWL.

A number of important books, both primary sources and studies, are available in Religion and Philosphy. They deal primarily with the doctrine and spirituality of different factions in Islam, Buddhism and Taoism. A number of dictionaries and encyclopedias are available on Judaism. In Philosophy, all the periods are covered, from classical Greece to modernity, through the scholasticism of the Middle ages, the magical philosophy of the Renaissance and the rationalism of the Illuminism. The relationship between religious philosophy and science is also put under light by some key works.
