  • • In 1521 he started to become religious after he was wounded in battle

  • • He was impressed with the saints and their self-sacrifice and ways to get over mental anguish, that he decided to be a soldier of Christ as well

  • • The Spiritual Exercises were religious and moral self-discipline rules that Ignatius came up with while he was recuperating

What happened1
What happened?

  • Designed to teach one to be able to reach total self-mastery, physically and mentally

  • • Most protestants saw Jesuits going against the church, but the exercises were to teach the catholics to submit to the church

  • • The simplicity of these statements won over many protestants back to Christianity (Austria and Germany)

The jesuits
The Jesuits

  • They are the members of the Society of Jesus

  • Believed that Protestants were disobedient to church authority and religious innovation

  • Turned to Ignatius’s exercises to teach good Catholics to respect Church authority and spiritual direction

How the jesuits showed weakened religion
How the Jesuits showed weakened religion?

  • The Jesuits helped create new reforms for the church during the counter reformation.

  • Their preaching weakened protestants in southern Germany and the area around it.

  • This shows disunity because the church was falling apart and the Jesuits were trying to rebuild it, by suggesting reforms and stemming the growth of protestants
