Jesuit history is a wonderful prism through which to look at many interdisciplinary aspects of modern global history, whether through explicitly comparative studies, or by the grouping of studies around a given topical, chronological, or geographic focus. The very best thing about Jesuit history is that it intersects with many historic events and movements, including the Renaissance, the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, Colonialism, Imperialism, Slavery, Anti-Modernism, Fascism, et cetera. It also engages with a staggering array of disciplines: art history, theology, literary studies, the history of science, international law, military history, performing arts, and many others. Associated with the Journal of Jesuit Studies, the Jesuit Studies book series targets those areas of scholarship on Jesuit history in its broader context that have been lamentably neglected.
