Institute of jesuit sources

Jesuit study

The Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies (IAJS) at Boston College is a leading research center dedicated to the study of Jesuit tradition, spirituality, pedagogy, and heritage. The Institute of Jesuit Sources (founded in 1961 in St. Louis) was succeeded by the IAJS in 2014, which had long known itself as one of the leading Jesuit institutions publishing primary sources and research resources on the Jesuits in the English language. The IAJS builds on this Jesuit academic tradition through its publications, symposia, workshops and digital projects.

Jesuit primary sources

The Way to Learn and the Way to Teach, by Joseph de Jouvancy, is now available from Boston College’s Institute of Jesuit Sources.
“This classic work by Fr. Joseph de Jouvancy, SJ, was first published in 1703, but it still has useful advice for today’s educators who want to be more than just trainers, but true shapers of the next generation,” Fr. Pavur said. “Jouvancy offers an inspiring vision of the teaching profession at its best, in addition to his practical and strategic advice.”
Joseph de Jouvancy, SJ, was a classical humanist who wrote plays, biographies, histories, orations, and, most notably, the influential book De discendi et docendi ratione (1643–1719). (The Way to Learn and the Way to Teach, 1703). Jouvancy explains the fundamentals of good teaching and how young teachers can successfully follow their own studies during their years of teaching in this book.

The Institute of Jesuit Sources is dedicated to increasing public knowledge of the Society of Jesus’ spirituality and history. It publishes material by more than fifty writers on the Jesuits, their heritage, their customs, their current activities, their future opportunities.
The Institute employs six full-time Jesuit staff members and editors. Their histories include everything from theology to astronomy, English literature to philosophy and Latin, canon law to intellectual history. IJS authors and translators have worked and written from every continent except Antarctica, and their interests have spanned the liberal arts, physical sciences, and social sciences. Their work exemplifies the Jesuit endeavor “to find God in all things.”
The Institute’s more than eighty publications are divided into many categories; one or more of these might be of interest to you. First, there is original source material from other languages that has been translated into English. Then there’s the scholarly secondary source material on the Jesuits, which has been translated from other languages into English. Works written in English are included in a third group. Another group treats of more popular works on a variety of Jesuit topics. Prayer, the writings of former Jesuit general Father Pedro Arrupe, and a final group of publications in media other than print are among the other topics covered (CD-ROMs, Video Casettes).
