St Ignatius Loyola Art Photos
St Ignatius Loyola (1491-1556) was born into a noble Basque family in Spain. As a wounded soldier he decided to devote himself to Christ. He became highly educated and is still known for his spiritual writings. In 1534 he became a founder of the Society of Jesus (aka Jesuits) and eventually its superior general with the goals of church reform, more missionary activity and the fight against heresy.
