The Center for Research on Global Catholicism (CRGC) at Saint Louis University supports scholarship on the ways and means by which Catholicism migrated across time and space to become a global religion, entangled with imperial ambitions, in excess of official intentions, mobilized by material objects, affective relationships, politics, theologies, epidemics and more.

The CRGC has partnered with local Catholic archives in St. Louis to form the St. Louis Catholic Archives Collective (SCAC). This collaboration is dedicated to increasing the visibility and accessibility of participating archival institutions, particularly those collections that illuminate the histories of women religious.

Participating institutions include:

The Visiting Research Grant funds two scholars per year to defray costs connected with conducting research at participating archives. Archival holdings consist of correspondence, administration records, diaries, ministry records, regular bulletins and publications, souvenir booklets, photographs, newspapers, scrapbooks, related publications, audio-visual materials, maps, and artifacts dating from the early 18th century to the present. Not only do the materials held in these archives illuminate the histories of the Archdiocese of St. Louis, individual congregations, parishes, and other Catholic institutions, but they also provide glimpses into local, national and world histories viewed through the lens of Catholic experiences.
