THE JESUITS. A Study in Counter-Revolution — F. A. Ridley

£1.50

This book — a fascinating and learned account of the Pope’s Jihadis, the ‘Assassins of Christendom’ and the shock-troops of the Catholic counter-revolution — seeks to substitute historical dialectics for theology or archaeology as the chief clue to the investigation of the great medieval reaction of four centuries ago. For perhaps the first time, it shows Loyola’s ultimate significance as the leader and founder of the most successful counter-revolution in history, a counter-revolution which preserved half Europe and Latin America under the yoke of medievalism until quite recent times, and whose effects can be seen in Spain and elsewhere to this day It is, therefore, fundamentally as a study in counter-revolution that the career and historic significance of Ignatius Loyola, and of his masterpiece, the Society of Jesus, is here presented.
