Antonio M. De Aldama SJ, An Introductory Commentary on the Constitutions

Along with his Spiritual Exercises, the Constitutions of the Society of Jesus are Ignatius of Loyola’s most precious legacy to the order he founded—the Society of Jesus—and the Church he loved and served. Through this present volume, the reader can return to this source of Jesuit life and work, past and present. In addition to its scholarly value, the book also aids in reading the Constitutions in the manner urged by Jerónimo Nadal, the Jesuit first entrusted by Ignatius with their explanation ‘with the spirit, with the heart, and with a view towards practice.’

Father Antonio de Aldama, born in Spain, entered the Jesuits in 1924. He studied in Spain, Belgium, England, and Italy. In 1945 he was appointed Secretary of the Society of Jesus, the same post occupied earlier by Juan de Polanco, St Ignatius’s closest collaborator in writing the Constitutions. From 1950 onwards he devoted himself to research and publication on the history, life, and constitutional structure of the Society of Jesus.
