Bibliography project

The Catholic University of America has a long association with research on Caesarius, going back to its first professor of moral theology, the Rev. Thomas Bouquillon (1840-1902), whom Germain Morin, O.S.B. credited with inspiring him to devote his life to editing the bishop's sermons. In collaboration with the association Aux Sources de la Provence (ASP), the Center is engaged in a project to document the life, writings, and reception of Caesarius, bishop of Arles (502-542). The following bibliographies are available/in preparation:
