A History of the Society of Jesus

Published by Institute of Jesuit Sources
The book cover for A History of the Society of Jesus by William Bangert

The great picture that Bangert was able to trace of the historical events linked to the Society of Jesus is the result of a successful encounter between profound erudition and narrative qualities. Tracing the Company’s path from its origins to the 1980s, through a chronological and thematic reconstruction of the events that delineate its character, the author has developed what to this day remains a fundamental text, perhaps the most complete for knowledge of the order founded by Ignatius of Loyola. A substantial apparatus of notes, an updated bibliography, a list of the general congregations and an index of the principal names and topics recurring in the volume, constitute a further enrichment of the original text.
