The database Jonas is fed by two different ways:

1. Section Romane ensures a bibliographic and enjoy the spoils of journals and monographs to learn gradually sheets works and manuscripts not hagiographic. This may be the occasion of a retrospective bibliography, however, listings of works and manuscripts may then remain incomplete. Initially, we are not looking for completeness that the publications issued since 2000. Bibliography entry will be by prior corpus.

2. A systematic review was undertaken for a thematic corpus, hagiography (Leurquin Anne-Francoise Marie-Laure Savoy), now completed. This work will be gradually extended to other fields of religious literature.
