Abstract:

La Compagnie de Jésus des Anciens Régimes au monde contemporain presents thirty-seven essays on the modern history of the Society of Jesus, spanning the eighteenth- to the twentieth centuries. The essays are multilingual, multidisciplinary and range across a wide chronological, geographical and thematic landscape within the field of modern history, while the papal Suppression (1773) and Restoration (1814) of the worldwide Society provide the volume’s main orientation. Until recently, modern Jesuit history has received relatively limited scholarly attention. This volume aims to guide researchers in the period’s riches and situate the Society in modern historical studies more broadly. A novelty of the volume is that it brings together the later history of the “Old Society”, the interim period of the Suppression (1773–1814), and the “New Society” (from the Restoration). Its broad frame provides a window onto the great ruptures of European history, the main events of modern Catholic history, and early globalization. While the well-known upheavals of this period come into view, the persistent continuities of these centuries also emerge, exemplified most potently by the Society’s own partial survival during the forty-one years of its papal suppression.
