New edition of Saint Ignatius’s memoirs

At the urging of the early Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola recounted the story of his spiritual conversion while recuperating from a battle wound to the founding of the religious order, the Society of Jesus. It’s an autobiography that would go to inspire and guide Jesuits and other readers for years to come. School of Theology and Ministry Assistant Professor of the Practice Barton T. Geger, S.J., who also is a research scholar at BC’s Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies, has edited a new edition of Saint Ignatius’s memoirs. In A Pilgrim’s Testament: The Memoirs of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, Fr. Geger provides a new introduction and original annotations, making the autobiography of Ignatius of Loyola more accessible to all. This new edition has been published by Jesuit Sources, which is housed at the IAJS.
