    Website:  Byzantine Catholic Seminary Library

    Collection Highlights:

    With nearly 25,000 cataloged items, 150 periodicals and a growing catalog of electronic resources, the Byzantine Catholic Seminary Library holds a specialized collection of unique items in the field of Eastern Catholic theology and music as well as Eastern European history. The library collection contains publications from the 16th to the 21st century. Some are manuscripts, but most of the collection consists of printed books and increasingly, other non-print media, concentrating on the Byzantine Catholic Church specifically. But it extends its focus as well to the Eastern Orthodox Church, its theology, and history as well as seeking items to add to our extensive collection of musical resources unique to the practice of prostopinije, or Ruthenian liturgical chant. The library also has a general collection of Christian dogma and theology books and the other major religions of the world as well as Eastern and Central European history and languages.
