What was the shared goal of the Jesuits and the Ursulines?


Catholic AnswerThe Jesuits were formed by St. Ignatius with the stated purpose to support the Holy Father and do whatever he asked for. One of the ways they have accomplished this is education of young men. The Ursulines were founded by St. Angela de Merici for the sole purpose of educating young girls. So I would assume that the answer would be the education of the young.

Jesuits (The Society of Jesus)

Who was the important Catholic reformer who founded the Society of Jesus also known as the Jesuits?

The Society was founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola(Iñigo López de Loyola, 1491-1566), a Spanish Knight, and six students at the University of Paris.

They met at the church of St. Denis (St. Pierre de Montmartre) on August 15, 1534, and formed the Amigos En El Señor(Company of Jesus). In 1537, the group was approved by Pope Paul III, and the Society of Jesus was formed on September 27, 1540.

The other six founders were Francisco Xavier, Alfonso Salmeron, Diego Laínez, Nicolas Bobadilla, Peter Faber, and Simao Rodrigues.

On August 15, 1534, Ignatius of Loyola (born Íñigo López de Loyola), a Spaniard of Basque origin, and six other students at the University of Paris met in Montmartre outside Paris, in the crypt of the Chapel of St Denis, Rue Yvonne le Tac. This group bound themselves by a vow of poverty and chastity, to "enter upon hospital and missionary work in Jerusalem, or to go without questioning wherever the pope might direct". That was the origins of the Society of Jesus, or Jesuits. Loyola was the first Superior of the order, and is considered to have been the founder.

How do you find out what degree you received from loyola in 1978?

Wow. Presuming you devoted at least 4 very critical years of your life to it and made life altering decisions about what your major would be, one can only wonder how you wouldn't know! You could always try reading the Diploma itself. You can contact the school, (like anyone checking your claimed credentials) and confirm one was awarded. You can then even get a copy of the diploma and your transcripts. But let me advise you in advance, if you didn't complete everything to be awarded one, including paying all fee's you had (like library fines), none will be forthcoming.

Jesuits (The Society of Jesus)

Who are the Jesuits?

Members of the the Society of Jesus are known as Jesuits

Society of Jesus is a Christian religious order of the Roman Catholic Church at the service of the universal Church.

Among many other contributions, the Jesuits so dominated the study of earthquakes that seismology became known as "the Jesuit science", according to Thomas E. Woods, Jr., PhD, in his book How The Catholic Church Built Western Civilization.

The Jesuits were a religious order created to serve the pope and the church. It was founded in 1534 by a Spanish noble, Ignatius of Loyola. One of the Jesuits' goals was to teach people about Catholic ideas. They hoped that a strong Catholic education would turn people against Protestant ideas.


Catholic AnswerThe Jesuits, as originally founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola and approved by Pope Paul III in 1540 had a two fold aim: 1) to strengthen and where necessary to restore the Catholic faith in the wake of the protestant revolt, and 2) to preach the Gospel in non-Christian lands. from Modern Catholic Dictionary by John A. Hardon, S.J. Doubleday & Co., Inc. Garden City, NY 1980


They are simliar to friars, as they are not monks, but a religious Order as opposed to a monastery. They take the normal three vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, along with a fourth vow of absolute obedience to the Holy Father. They have been famous for their education, it takes a minumum of nine years to become a Jesuit.

What was the purpose of the Society of Jesus?

The Reformation was a major challenge to the Church of Rome. As a result, the Church started its own reforms during the mid-1500s which helped it regain strength in much of Europe. The reforms of Luther and others were called the Protestant Reformation. The Catholic Church's reforms were called the Catholic Reformation. A key development of the Catholic Reformation was the founding of the Society of Jesus. This was a religious order, or group. It was led by Ignatius Loyola (ig NAY shus loy OH luh). Its members are called Jesuits (JEZH oo its). They worked to educate people and to spread the Catholic faith. They helped build the Church's strength in southern Europe. The Catholic Church was also strengthened by Paul III. He became pope in 1534. He helped the Church focus on its abuses, which included corrupt practices among the clergy. In 1542, Paul III called for a meeting. It is known as the Council of Trent. This meeting helped steer the Church back to matters of religion and spirituality.


Catholic AnswerThe Society of Jesus was founded by St. Ignatius Loyola and approved by Pope Paul III in 1540, it had a twofold aim: to strengthen and where necessary to restore the Catholic faith in the wake of the protestant revolt and to preach the Gospel in lands which have not yet heard the Gospel. The first purpose yielded the establishment of colleges throughout Europe, the second the development of worldwide mission enterprises in Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
Jesuits (The Society of Jesus)

Why were the catholics and puritans and jesuits a threat to elizabeth the first?

Although all of these faiths caused a problem for Elizabeth, It is thought that the most predominent of them was Catholicism.

As far as Elizabeth was concerned, so long as Catholics behaved themselves, were loyal to her, and attended church now and then, they were free to believe what they wished. Elizabeth tried to accommodate Catholic beliefs in her religious settlement so that they could go to church without feeling guilty or disloyal to their faith, and often turned a blind eye to Catholics who had secret services in their home. There was no attempt to ruthlessly seek out Catholics, and no desire to put ordinary men and women to death simply for their faith.

After creating a fairly stable religious set up, whereby England was a protestant country without objection to catholicism in private practice, Elizabeth came to be dismayed at the arrival of cousin Mary. Although this is not the question asked, it is important to understand the background of Mary's arrival before persuing the religious aspects of it.

Mary Queen of Scott's had a claim to the English throne which was based on the fact that she was the grand-daughter of Margaret Tudor, sister of Henry VIII who was Elizabeth's father. In the eyes of the Catholics, Mary's claim appeared stronger than Elizabeth's because they believed that Henry's marriage to Anne Boleyn was illegal. When Mary's young husband Francis II died in December 1560, Mary -who was about to become 18 years of age, was left in a difficult position. Unwilling to stay in France and live under the domination of her mother-in-law so she decided to return to Scotland and take her chances with the Protestant reformers.

On 19th August 1561, Mary returned to Scotland and recognised the Reformed church and allowed it a modest endowment but not full establishment. The Protestant reformers were angry.

In 1568, Mary was in great danger living in Scotland due to religious circumstances, and so in fear, fled to England in search of help from her cousin, Elizabeth I.

However, the presence of Mary in England was very alarming to Elizabeth, as the religious differences had only recently been solved, and Mary's presence was almost certain to cause a Catholic rebellion. As a strong figurehead for Catholic uprising, backed by the pope, protestant officials in England wanted to make certain that news of Mary's arrival did not spread, allowing plots to form and religious unsettling to occur. It was this fear that caused the decision the imprison Mary, which would continue for a further 19 years. During this time, many catholic plots were generated. These include:

- A papal bull issued on 25 February 1570 by Pope Pius V declaring "Elizabeth, the pretended Queen of England and the servant of crime" to be a heretic and releasing all her subjects from any allegiance to her and excommunicating any that obeyed her orders

- The Ridolfi plot was a plot in 1570 to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I of England and replace her with Mary, Queen of Scots. The plot was hatched and planned by Roberto di Ridolfi, an international banker who was able to travel between Brussels, Rome and Madrid to gather support without attracting too much suspicion.

- The Babington plot, generated by Anthony Babington was similar to the Ridolfi plot, intending to kill Elizabeth in favour of Mary. In 1586 Mary replied to a secret letter from Anthony Babington. As with earlier plots, Babington and his fellow conspirators planned to kill Elizabeth and make Mary Queen of England. Unfortunately for Mary, she had been trapped. English secret agents had always known about the plot and Mary was charged with treason. Elizabeth, however, couldn't bring herself to execute her cousin. Months passed before Elizabeth's advisors pressured her to sign the death warrant. On the 8th Feb 1587 Mary was beheaded at Fotheringhay Castle in England.

What interior threats to freedom did St. Ignatius of Loyola have to hurdle?

Roman Catholic AnswerIgnatius led a rather wild life in his youth, as he was brought up at Court, although he had no official function there. After that he went into the army and was wounded severely and had to undergo several very painful operations to restore the use of his leg. During his convalescence he did a lot of reading, mostly of a religious nature as that is all that could be found and he found himself day dreaming of adventures and ladies. It was only when he was day dreaming about rivaling the saints in virtue that he was satisfied, all the other dreams left him dissatisfied. As he had been a very careful youth, and then young man in the world, I imagine that his settling on a religious vocation curtailed his freedom quite a lot.

Catholic Answer

The primary goal of the Society of Jesus was to combat the protestant heresy, in this they were not successful, although they did make some difference, mostly in localized locales. This was only one of the goals of the Society "to restore the Catholic faith among those devastated by this heresy. The other goal was to evangelize those who had never heard of the Gospel. The Jesuits had two things going for them, they were highly educated and trained, from the beginning, to become a full fledged Jesuit has involved nine years of study and formation. The other thing is that the Jesuit take a special fourth vow of immediate obedience to the Holy Father. In this they remain flexible as the Holy Father may call on them at any time. They did a great deal in both areas, that of education, and that of evangelization . Many Catholic schools, colleges, and universities were founded by the Jesuits.
