KIRKUS REVIEW

Subtitled A Pictorial Biography, this volume on St. Ignatius of Loyola contains numerous photographic plates and a narrative outline of the saint's life. It is attractively bound. The narrative is interesting and inspiring as well as more sophisticated in tone than is customary in books of this type. The exceptionally beautiful photographs depict Spanish, Italian and Palestinian landscapes, architecture, sculpture and art objects associated with the life of St. Ignatius and early Jesuit history. They serve to illustrate the narrative and to reflect the authentic physical background of the saint's life. The book will appeal to those who revere St. Ignatius and admire the Jesuit Order, as well as to those who are interested in Spanish history and culture and who relish good photographs of landscape and art. The book is published appropriately during the year in which Catholics commemorate the four-hundredth anniversary of St. Ignatius' death.
