About Book

Book Description
A Candid History of the Jesuits Originally published in 1913, this is an exhaustive examination of the history of the Jesuit society, based on original Jesuit documents. It affords a truthful picture of the dramatic fortunes of the Society during nearly four centuries, and some insight into the character of the men who won for it such ardent devotion and such intense hostility. Contents include: Origin of the Society, The First Jesuits, Early Storms, General Francis Borgia, Progress and Decay under Acquaviva, the Early Jesuits in England, The First Century of Jesuitism, Under the Stuarts, The Struggle With Jansenists, The Expulsion From Portugal and Spain, The Foreigh Missions, In The Germain Lands, The Suppression of the Society, The Restoration, The New Jesuits, The last Phase. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Obscure Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
