The Jesuits and Globalization

Historical Legacies and Contemporary Challenges

The Society of Jesus, commonly known as the Jesuits, is the most successful and enduring global missionary enterprise in history. Founded by Ignatius Loyola in 1540, the Jesuit order has preached the Gospel, managed a vast educational network, and shaped the Catholic Church, society, and politics in all corners of the earth. Rather than offering a a global history of the Jesuits or a linear narrative of globalization, Thomas Banchoff and José Casanova have assembled a multidisciplinary group of leading experts to explore what we can learn from the historical and contemporary experience of the Society of Jesus—what do the Jesuits tell us about globalization and what can globalization tell us about the Jesuits?

Contributors include comparative theologian Francis X. Clooney, SJ, historian John W. O'Malley, SJ, Brazilian theologian Maria Clara Lucchetti Bingemer, and ethicist David Hollenbach, SJ. They focus on three critical themes—global mission, education, and justice—to examine the historical legacies and contemporary challenges. Their insights contribute to a more critical and reflexive understanding of both the Jesuits' history and of our contemporary human global condition.

Endorsements

"Examining the world-history of the Society of Jesus from its foundation in 1540 across three phases of globalization, The Jesuits and Globalization documents how Jesuit missions and education contributed to the rise of humanitarianism, cosmopolitanism, and the rise of human rights regimes."—Bryan S. Turner, The Graduate Center CUNY and ACU (Melbourne) ,

"This interesting collection describes the remarkable historical trajectory of the Jesuit order—how already in the sixteenth century they anticipated some of the insights we have only recently acquired about how to live in a globalized world. We understand, too, how this order has so often inspired at once great admiration and implacable hostility. The book offers a new perspective on the unfolding of world history over the last half-millennium."—Charles Taylor, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, McGill University
