On the 11th of December, at the Pontifical Theological Faculty of the Teresianum, there was a presentation of the “Bibliographia Internationalis Spiritualitatis Online” (BIS Online – International Bibliography of Spirituality Online). This is the emergence in a new form of the important and very well known “Bibliographia Internationalis Spiritualitatis”, pubished over many years by the Teresianum, up until 2006 when it ceased. Now there has been an agreement between the Teresianum and the Institutum Carmelitanum to publish online the bibliography in the area of spiritual theology, with particular reference to Carmelite interests, from 2007 onwards. The venture was made possible by the collaboration of the Brepols publishing house, who made their information system available to help set up a proper database, with open access for the moment, and which already contains some 9000 titles. The project will continue as new titles are added, but it is already available for consultation at this website address: <>. The presentation began with a welcome by the President of the Teresianum, Fr. Denis Chardonnens, OCD, and Fr. Giovanni Grosso, O.Carm., President of the Institutum Carmelitanum, partners in the “BIS Online” project. Frs. Christof Betschart, OCD, and Lukasz Strzyż-Steinert, OCD then explained the project, by speaking about how it began and what its prospects are. Mr. Axel Alt, the principal bibliographer of the “BIS Online”, explained how the website works and the possibilities it offers in terms of bibliographical research. The main talk on the significance and present state of Carmelite studies was given by the Superior General of the Discalced Carmelites and Chancellor of the Pontifical Theological Faculty of the Teresianum, Fr. Saverio Cannistrà, OCD.
