About

The recently established Editions jésuites, result from the fusion of three Belgian publishing houses (Fidélité, Lessius, Lumen Vitae) and from new partnerships with the Jesuits of France. Through this initiative, the Belgian and French Jesuit provinces intend to instil new breath into intellectual research, religious formation, and evangelization. Please note that the three brand names have been maintained.

logo fidélité

Since over twenty years, the publications of Fidélité have been meeting the expectations of a broad readership in the fields of prayer, spirituality, liturgical and pastoral life, awakening children to the faith, and social issues. Among their popular series are “Que penser de …?” and “Prières glanées”. Their portfolio of authors includes such renowned figures as Stan Rougier, Guy Gilbert, Cardinal Danneels, Sister Emmanuelle, Cardinal Martini, Olivier Le Gendre, and Dom Louf.

logo lessius

Books published by Lessius have been well-received for their high level quality in the fields of biblical exegesis, ecclesiology, philosophy, religious history and interreligious dialogue.. John O’Malley’s Vatican II, Gustave Martelet’s essay on the ever greater Christ, Jean-Louis Ska’s Enigmes du passé or Bernard Sesbouë’s history and theology of the infallibility of the Church are classical thought-provoking titles. The pocket series “La Petite Bibliothèque Jésuite” explores the resources of Ignatian spirituality and Jesuit history.

logo lumen vitae

The know-how of Lumen Vitae is widely acclaimed in the fields of religious education, catechetics, pastoral work and practical theology.Started as an extension of the Lumen Vitae international institute of formation, the publishing activities have now developed collaborations with university centres in Paris (Institut Catholique), Laval, Fribourg and Louvain-la- Neuve. The books and other material analyse our present society and provide reflections and tools at the crossroads of theology and lived faith.
