The Jesuits were the leading order in the Catholic Church in Europe at the Counter‐Reformation, and were regarded as the most papalist and unscrupulous of the Pope's followers. This chapter traces their downfall in the late eighteenth century. The different sections of the chapter cover critics of the Jesuits, Jesuits in Paraguay, the French Jesuits, Pope Clement XIII (1758–69) and support for the Jesuits, the Spanish Jesuits, Jesuits in Naples and in Parma (Italy), Pope Clement XIV Ganganelli (1769–74) against the Jesuits, and the attempt by Jesuits to survive in Prussia and in Russia.
