Part 2 for Members: We take the focus away from Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits, to the Society of Jesuits as a whole. After his death the battles heated up which culminated in 1593, where the institution of the limpieza de sangre policy won out and kept conversos out of the Jesuits for roughly 15 years, until the were allowed re-admittance albeit under close watch and reservation. We also go into controversial converso Memorialistas such as Juan de Mariana, who was infamous for his regicide tracts, and primitive liberalism, contrasted with the society’s Superior General Acquaviva’s battles against Spanish Jesuits like Mariana. It was certainly a complicated situation; the ultimate takeaway is that it takes two to tango and these controversies were not a one way street.
