BBC on the Jesuits


Just a link to the programme on Radio 4 on the Jesuits, it is quite worth listening to.

Part of it was an interesting discussion on the Jesuits influence on science and the Enlightenment.

Thought it odd that they didn't actually include any actual Jesuits. I wonder if they thought they were a kind of museum piece.

Paulinus,
You might well say that, I couldn't possibly comment.

Hi, I just listen that and I thing it's only a king of review of jesuit's history, nothing more but educational if you don't know nothing about them.
