Sale Price realised GBP , Exercitia Spiritualia. Rome: Antonio Blado, 11 September The importance and influence of St Ignatius's Spiritual Exercises cannot be overstated: as the foundational document of the Society of Jesus, it combined spiritual power with a militant character that worked to spread the Christian faith around the globe.
Born Inigo Lopez de Recalde to a noble Basque family in the province of Guipuzcoa in Spain, St Ignatius led a normal youth but received his religious transformation as a young man. In , while convalescing from wounds earned while fighting the French at Pamplona, he decided to do penance for his sins. He visited Montserrat in , and then Manresa from March to February It was here he first sketched his Exercises. He made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in , but was sent back to Europe by the Franciscans.
In , he was in Paris during the period of anti-Protestant turmoil which forced John Calvin to flee France. The organization that would grow up around him formed then, when a few followers bound themselves by vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience.

It is this characteristic in particular which made the book such a powerful influence when it became with the Constitutiones , on which Ignatius was still at work when he died the handbook of the Society of Jesus, which is devoted to educational, missionary and other active works. St Ignatius introduced many innovations when founding the Society of the Jesuit Order; the abandonment of such traditional forms of worship as chanting the divine office, a monarchical rather than collegiate constitution, and much simpler vows.
These elements, together with the spiritual power of the Exercises , gave the Order its militant character and enabled it to exercise its great influence on the world.
As a work of religious inspiration the impact of the Exercises has been almost as great outside the Society of Jesus as within' PMM. Octavo x mm.
