Ignatian Pedagogy: Classic and Contemporary Texts on Jesuit Education from St. Ignatius to Today is an essential resource for anyone seeking to appreciate the origins, development, and contemporary understandings of Jesuit education. Commissioned by the Secretariat for Education of the Society of Jesus, Ignatian Pedagogy presents the principle texts—including letters from the first Jesuits, official documents of the Society of Jesus, and speeches from numerous Superior Generals—that chronicle how the Society of Jesus responded to the significant opportunities and challenges their educational apostolate faced through the centuries.
Bearing witness to the creative fidelity characteristic of the Jesuit tradition, Ignatian Pedagogy offers researchers and practitioners the context and detail that demonstrate the genius of Jesuit education in its continued relevance and its ability to effectively form “people for others.”
