Marking 200 Years Since the Restoration of the Society of Jesus

Screen Shot 2014-01-16 at 5.21.08 PMIn 1773, due to pressure from the monarchy in Europe, Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Society of Jesus, effectively shuttering Jesuit schools, ministries and social works in Portugal, France, Spain and parts of Italy. It was not until 1814 that Pope Pius VII issued a papal bull restoring the Society.

This year marks the 200th anniversary of the Society’s restoration, and a new website has been created by Fr. Timothy Byron, SJ, of the British Jesuit Province to inform readers about this important chapter in the society’s history. View the site here: www.sj2014.net.

Check out the “events page” of the website for information about conferences and other events related to the 2014 Anniversary.
