Jesuit Sources has released its first publication since its relocation from Saint Louis to Boston College’s Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies in 2014. Jesuit Pedagogy, 1540-1616: A Reader, edited by Cristiano Casalini and Claude Pavur, S.J., offers—for the first time in English—a wide selection of relevant materials that shows the development of Jesuit approaches to pedagogy in theory and practice. The anthology brings about a better understanding of why Jesuit schools became such important educational institutions in early modernity. According to the editors, this volume will be both a helpful tool for those researching Jesuit education and a source of inspiration and insight for those directly involved in its practice today. Fr. Pavur is an associate editor at Jesuit Sources and Casalini is a visiting scholar with the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College. Founded in 1961, Jesuit Sources is a publishing house specializing in preserving and making available to scholars around the world important texts in Jesuit history, spirituality, and pedagogy.
