2606 The Founding of the Jesuits 1540, by Michael Foss (read 18 May 1994) This is a 1969 book which is part of the series called "Turning Points in History." It tells of the founding and then tells a lot more about the Jesuits till their suppression in 1773. The first part is very good, but the author is pretty tough on the Jesuits after St. Ignatius Loyola's death. This book has the ring of a commissioned book by a series' editor (in this case Sir Denis Brogan) and one can't say there is a lot of originality. The 'Select Bibliography' is not impressive, the citations being just author and title (no year or city) and all in all the account till 1556 was very good but thereafter it jumped around a lot and sounded pretty opinionated.
