Jesuit Generals: A Glimpse Into a Forgotten Corner
Since the Renaissance there have been legions of great, dedicated Jesuits. Many are well known. It is remarkable, however, how the Generals, the successors to St. Ignatius, are today little known. This book is a modest attempt to remedy that oversight by presenting a portrait of each of the thirty three Generals along with a brief biography.
