Early Jesuits urged Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491–1556), founder of the Society of Jesus, to share the story of how God had worked in his soul. His memoirs, they hoped, would inspire and guide Jesuits and other readers for years to come. Father Barton Geger, provides a new introduction and original annotations for this edition of A Pilgrim’s Testament. Geger includes fascinating notes that accompany this important text, making the autobiography of Ignatius of Loyola more accessible to all. 

Purchase Father Geger’s version of “A Pilgrim’s Testament: The Memoirs of Saint Ignatius of Loyola” from the Institute of Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College or on Amazon.
