Philippe Couplet: Catalogus patrum Societas Jesu, qui post obitum S. Francisci Xaverii primo saeculo, sive ab anno 1581. usque ad 1681, in Imperio Sinarum Jesu-Christi fidem propagarunt… (Paris : ex Typographia R. J. B. de la Caille 1686)

This list of Jesuit missionaries follows the Shengjiao xinzheng 聖教信證 (ca. 1680) and provides brief biographical notes on their activities in China. The catalogue is also published as an annex to Verbiest’s Astronomia europaea (1687).
