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 so many other important topics from the Renaissance and Reformations to the Scientific Revolution to the Enlightenment to Colonialism to Imperialism to Slavery to Anti-Modernism to 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 will target those areas of scholarship on Jesuit history in its broader context that have been lamentably neglected but it will also invite contributions of important but hard to find monographs in other languages, which shall be encouraged to be translated.
