Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies
The Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies seeks to deepen understanding and appreciation of the history, spirituality, educational heritage, and pedagogical approach of the Society of Jesus through courses, workshops, publications, and scholarly symposia.
Applications are now accepted for the Institute’s online course on Jesuit Pedagogy. Students examine the Jesuits’ distinctive approaches to teaching over the centuries in this three-credit, graduate-level course. Details and an application are available online.
Jesuit Sources has published the first bilingual (Spanish and English) edition of Jesuit Antonio Ruiz de Montoya’s The Spiritual Conquest (1639). The book is an important source for understanding the encounters between missionaries, settlers, and native peoples in seventeenth-century Paraguay.
The annual International Symposium on Jesuit Studies takes place at Seville’s Universidad Loyola Andalucía, with the theme: “Francisco Suárez (1548–1617): Jesuits and Complexities of Modernity.” The call for papers and additional details for the 2019 International Symposium are available online.
In this graduate-level, three-credit course, participants from around the globe immerse themselves in the key places that became the roots of the Society of Jesus. Details on the course and its itinerary are available online.
In its third year, Ever to Excel will welcome high school students from around the world to live Jesuit spirituality and explore Boston College. Details about the program are available online.
