Product Overview

Ignatius of Loyola is well known for his Spiritual Exercises and the Constitutions. But he was also the author of about 7,000 letters, some 370 of which are contained in a volume that is now the largest such collection in English. Addressed to popes and future popes, cardinals and bishops, emperors and kings, relatives, penitents, friends, pilgrims, students, and fellow Jesuits, the topics of the letters range across a spectrum of personal, political, social, educational, financial, and, especially, religious concerns. Their style and tone depend on the recipient, varying from businesslike, warmly personal, courtly, gently reassuring, direct, or stern.
