A title history is the publication history of a journal and includes a listing of the family of related journals. The most common relationship is to a previous and/or continuing title, where a journal continues publishing with a change to its official title. Other common relationships include a journal that is a supplement to another journal, a journal that is absorbed into another journal, a journal that splits into two or more new journals, or two or more journals that merge to form a new journal. For each of these related journals, the title history lists the dates published.
Description: Collectanea Hibernica (1958-2006) was directed by the Franciscans attached to the Franciscan House of Celtic Studies and Historical Research at Killiney, Co. Dublin. Its sole aim was to publish sources of Irish history and guides to such sources. It published editions of manuscripts dealing with various aspects of Irish history and catalogues of manuscript collections, in Ireland and elsewhere, containing Irish historical material. Occasionally it furnished guides to archives or manuscript collections of Irish interest. Most of the material is from Roman Catholic ecclesiastical sources and ranges from the correspondence between papal envoys and the papal curia in Rome and the correspondence and reports of bishops to imprints of Catholic interest and some state documents. The material is reproduced in its original language and is accompanied by introduction and notes in English. While there is some earlier material, most comes from the 17th to the 19th centuries.
