William V. Bangert SJ, A History of the Society of Jesus

Fr Bangertís book is, quite simply, the most comprehensive and up to date one volume history of the Jesuits in any language. In a reliable, scholarly, and documented narrative, the author tells the story of the Jesuits from their founding in 1540 up to recent times. The footnotes and extensive bibliography furnish leads to the most important books and periodicals for further study of the various periods or topics treated in this volume. Since its publication, this book has been translated into several languages.

Throughout the four and a half centuries of their existence, the Jesuits have engaged themselves wholeheartedly in the life of the Church and in the religious, intellectual, and cultural currents of their time., Their educational institutions and evangelizing activities have reached from one end of the world to the other. Out of the insights of their founder, Ignatius of Loyola, as expressed in the Spiritual Exercises and the Constitutions of the Society, the Jesuits have developed a spirituality that is deeply rooted both in prayer and in the conviction that God is at work in all the activities of the world.

This presentation of the history of the Society of Jesus is basically chronological, but at the same time it keeps in view the ever changing ecclesiastical, political, social, and cultural contexts within which the Jesuits carried on their lives and activities.

Chapters 1 through 5 relate the Societyís history to 1759, when Portugal started the series of actions that lead to the orderís suppression by Pope Clement XIV in 1773. Chapter 6 treats of that suppression itself, the unexpected survival of the Society under extraordinary circumstances, and the subsequent universal restoration by Pope Pius VII in 1814. Chapters 7 and 8 bring the history up to the present time.,
