Antiphonary (University Archives and Library Special Collections)

This antiphonary, handwritten on vellum in Latin, was possibly created by a Spanish Catholic religious community in the 15th century. In 2018 Xavier University Library's Digital Initiatives and Special Collections with support from the Digital Media Lab digitized the fragile bound manuscript using digital photography.

Edgecliff Yearbook (Journals, Publications, Conferences, and Proceedings)

Edgecliff College, formerly Our Lady of Cincinnati College, merged with Xavier University in 1980. The five yearbooks contain a total of 650 pages and depict students and activities at the college for this period of time. The Edgecliff Yearbook was published 1970-1972 & 1978-1979. The microfilm version is housed in the library’s archives.

Jesuit Memorial Holy Cards (University Archives and Library Special Collections)

The Jesuit Memorial Card Collection, created by Xavier University Archives, contains funeral prayer cards, ordination cards, devotional cards, and other Catholic ephemera. The materials depict St. Francis Xavier, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and individual members of the Society of Jesus.

This digital collection contains select holy cards from the Jesuit Memorial Card Collection. Funeral prayer cards and commemorative cards for individual Jesuits comprise the majority of the digital collection. The Jesuits, both priests and brothers, represented in it served as faculty, staff, or administrators at Xavier University (Cincinnati, Ohio). Some also attended Xavier as students. The holy cards are typically used by Catholics in private devotion to affirm enduring ties to the deceased or to memorialize special occasions and Catholic sacraments.

The front side of a card is displayed at the top of the individual card's main page. To view the back of a particular card, scroll down to the bottom of its main page and select the additional file to view or download. The information on the back of a card is also available in the description and transcription fields found on the card's main page.
