The Origin of the Jesuits

  • By James Brodrick
It was mid-summer, 1940. Paris had fallen. Brittania anticipated German invasion. Against this backdrop, the English Province of the Society of the Jesuits, like their brothers throughout the world, sought an appropriate way to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Jesuit order. To mark the occasion, Father James Brodrick, S.J., an historian with a wry wit, had written a spirited account of the origins of the Jesuits and their founding fathers. Although severely restricted by wartime rationing of paper, printers Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd. proceeded with a limited run, and the first edition of "The Origin Of This Jesuits" was born. Now considered a classic of Jesuilica, no finer short introduction to the history and the spirit of the Jesuit order has ever been written in English or any language. Many reprints later, Loyola Press is proud to present this special paperback edition of the original Brodrick text, with a new foreword by Joseph N. Tylenda, S.J. A beautifully re-designed arid historically significant cover completes the updated work.
