The global community of Educate Magis has launched a new interactive resource offering a compilation of the most important documents and events in contemporary Jesuit education. It includes graphics and information on origins, authors and important dates in one chronological map of key milestones. Click here to view and explore Jesuit Education: A Contemporary Map ».

Educate Magis is an online education community that connects teachers and educators from Jesuit and Ignatian schools around the world. Hosted by the Irish Province and operated out of Galway, it is dedicated to answering the call of the Society of Jesus to become a “universal body with a universal mission”.

With the interactive map you can see Jesuit education on one web page or on your mobile phone by category and by time. You can navigate or print the original sources by clicking on each document and each event link.

Categories on the map include the general congregations of the Jesuits, their apostolic preferences, the lives of Jesuit leaders and their key discourses, secretariats and networks, and foundational documents. It covers a timeline from the 1960s until present day.

Those who wish to quickly navigate the map may be interested in the cartoon sketches of the Jesuit leaders and display boxes that offer brief information about them.

Those who wish to find out more about Jesuit education can read through full documents such as Fr Pedro Arrupe’s key discourse on ‘Men and Women for Others’ and Fr Arturo Sosa’s ‘The University as a Source of a Reconciled Life’.

There is a further link to an interactive map of Jesuit schools throughout the world under the heading of ‘Jesuit Schools’.

Jesuit Education: A Contemporary Map » is available in English, Spanish and French. You can also download the map with hover text and live links on a PDF document.
