Myths, Misquotes, and Misconceptions about St. Ignatius Loyola

Bart Geger, S.J. Boston College School of Theology and Ministry 
February 20, 2018
Gasson 100 • 4 pm

For the last five centuries, St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuit order, has been credited with saying things that he never said, doing things that he never did, teaching things that he never taught. Sometimes the errors are harmless, even amusing. On occasion, however, they misrepresent the saint's spirituality in ways that can be detrimental to those who seek to emulate him. Fr. Barton Geger, SJ, of the Institute of Advanced Jesuit Studies and the School of Theology and Ministry, will name these errors and offer some broader reflections on the reasons why they seem to be especially prevalent today.
