Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an excellent book, well worth attention by a broad range of students and scholars." Renaissance Quarterly

"Long in preparation, this is the first attempt in some time to survey Jesuit political philosophy in the first century of the Society of Jesus. Höpfl traces key arguments in all the major Jesuit political treatises." CHOICE May 2005

"The result of this thorough research into the sources and judicious weighing of what Jesuits of the epoch actually thought helps the reader get to the core of the matter." - Journal of Church and State, Kevin B. Fagan, California State University, San Luis Obispo

"Höpfl's book spans a turbulent period of political history in Europe...in an intelligent and exhaustive analysis. The book is a valuable addition to the relatively insubstantial historiography on the Society of Jesus in this period, surveying the intellectual contribution of the Society's headliners such as Francisco Suarez, Gabriel Vasquez, Robert Persons, and Juan de Mariana." - Sophie Nicholls, H-Ideas

Book Description

Despite the significance of the Society of Jesus in Counter-Reformation Europe and beyond, important issues relating to this society's collective history are little understood, leading to unfounded myths. How far did the Society of Jesus develop and maintain a distinctive position on key questions of political thought such as ruler authority, the character and scope of positive law, the limits of obedience and the right to resist? Harro Hopfl presents here the first full-length study of Jesuit thinking about the secular world, analysed in its proper historical context.
