History of the Jesuits

By July 20, 2006

Follow me on:

God's Soldiers: History of the Jesuits Book of the Day: God's Soldiers: History of the Jesuits, by Jonathan Wright. Publisher: Doubleday.

There are probably few people who havenít heard of the Jesuits, more properly known as the Society of Jesus, but just how much do people know about them - their history, their goals, and their methods? Thatís a more difficult question to answer because there are so many myths that have developed about the organization (both positive and negative). Disentangling myth from reality is no easy task, especially where religion and hagiography are concerned.
