Abstract:

This book is a gallery of over one hundred Jesuits who have played a significant role in the history of the Society of Jesus and can be said to represent it. In the foreground, the actors: saints and scholars, missionaries and martyrs, intellectuals and explorers, a leading exponent of baroque music, and the most original of English poets. Without hiding the embarrassing characters: the non-conformist, the courtier, the embittered, the visionary, the imprudent administrator who brought disaster, and the popular singer who became an alcoholic but rose from the mire. In the background, the Order's history cycle: the promise of spring, the splendor of summer, the crisis of autum, the winter of the expulsions and the suppression (death in four stages), and the second spring of the restoration. The history of the Society of Jesus in its passion and its glory, told in a transparent and direct narrative, not limited to generalities but coming down to earth, to capture it as it happens, fully human and throbbing with life. A flesh-and-blood history. - Back cover.
