Collection-level Scope and Content Note

Annual letters in Latin of the Jesuit mission in the Province of Peru, for twelve years falling between 1591 and 1704. Provide information on number of schools, houses, number of missioners and priests, and the number of students and novices by location. Then follows a detailed report on each college, seat, and residence as well as commentary on work and living conditions. The Province of Peru included parts of what are now Peru, Bolivia, Panama, Ecuador, Columbia and Argentina, with reports on Paraguay and Chile. Because these letters were not those sent to Rome, but were versions that circulated within the Province or were kept in Lima, they will probably not be identical with those found in the 'Monumenta Peruana.'


  • 1591 - 1704
