E186

Heimbucher, Max Josef. Die Orden und Kongregationen der katholischen Kirche. 3. grossenteils neubearb. Aufl. Paderborn, F. Schöningh, 1933-34. 2v. LC 35-820.

A good source of bibliography but covers fewer orders than Kapsner (E189), Hélyot (E187), or the Dizionario (E181). An historical treatment of individual religious orders giving some statistical information, biographies of famous members and so forth. Malclès describes it as "a capital work abounding in bibliographies."
