The Jesuit Myth

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses one of the prevailing images of the Jesuits made popular by the anti-jesuit movement. In this chapter, the three major generic figures from the blackened version of the Jesuit past of the 19th-century imaginations are examined in detail. These three imagery of the Jesuits include the Jesuit regicide, the Jesuit accapareur des heritages, and the Jesuit confessor as a spy. From these three imageries, the accusations and speculations of the anti-jesuits of Jesuit murder and terrorism, Jesuit accumulation of wealth, and the Jesuit intelligence system formed.

Keywords:   Jesuits, anti-jesuit, Jesuit regicide, accapareur des heritages, Jesuit confessor, spy, murder, terrorism, accumulation of wealth, intelligence system
