The Mysticism of Ignatius of Loyola

By: Brian O’Leary, SJ

A soldier saint or a mystic? Over the centuries since 1556, the year of his death, Ignatius has been interpreted through a variety of images.

Linked with this was his upbringing in the chivalric culture of the day that included training in the art of warfare. Then there was...
