Msg event.pngThe Foundation of Societas Jesu

In 1540 Pope Paulus III recognized the Jesuite Order, created 1534 by the Spaniard Don Iñigo López de Recalde, better know as Ignatius of Loyola. He becomes one of the most devoted counter reformists and enemy number one of the Protestant movement. Loyola having a soldier background makes its mark on the order, which is organized almost as an army. High priority was given both to educating missionaries but also counselors for European royal courts. This made the Jesuite order very powerful in the politic scene. 1773 the Jesuite order was dissolved by Pope Pius VI due to pressure from Christian countries in the age of enlightenment. 1814 the Jesuite order was reinstituted, however just as a faint shadow of the powerful order it once had been.

Msg event.pngThe Counter-Reformation and the Reformation of the Catholic Faith

The Counter-reformation movement historically started in 1540 with the institution of the Societas Jesu. This marked the beginning of a few highly volatile decades in European history when the two sides of Reformed and Counter-reformed fought each other. At the same time there were forces within the Catholic Church who wanted reform to remedy the corruption and other afflictions of the church. Thus in 1545 the Council of Trent was called. The debate went on for almost 20 years with almost as much turmoil created as on the battlefields against the Protestants.
