When did the Jesuits begin?
Self-tutoring about history: the tutor gives a brief about the Jesuits.
The Jesuits are a Catholic religious order begun in 1534, and approved by Pope Paul III in 1540. Their main aim is helping people from a Catholic viewpoint, hopefully converting them to Catholicism.
In Europe the Jesuits went to work reclaiming converts from Protestantism. Later they traveled to colonies to bring the Catholic religion. Education was a key focus of the Jesuits.
The Jesuits continue their mission.
