Vincentian Bibliography

for the formation of our own

SIEV is happy to offer an impetus to the formation of our own in proposing a bibliography which focuses on the Vincentian books which might be called "basic" and which should be part of every library in the formation houses of the Congregation of the Mission. We hope this will help the formators in the choice of books to acquire for the library in their formation house or to give to their students to read. It is evident that for areas of specialization, many other books are necessary.

We are offering three different bibliographies, according to the languages: one in French prepared by Fr. Jean-Pierre Renouard; a second in English, prepared by Fr. John Prager; and a third in Spanish, prepared by Frs. Miguel Pérez Flores and John Prager. If you wish to procure the bibliographies in the other languages, you will find them in the same issue of Vincentiana according to the proper language.
