The Life and Legacy of Ignatius Loyola Founder of the Jesuits
Hosted by the distinguished actor Cyril Cusack, The Company examines the life and legacy of Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus and one of the most influential figures in the history of Christianity.
Rarely has any other single group influenced the modern world (secular as well as spiritual) as the Jesuits. Suppressed and dissolved by the Pope in 1773, they were saved by Catherine the Great. The Society of Jesus later became one of the most powerful organizations in the history of Christianity.
Filmed on location in England, France, Italy, Spain, and the U.S., The Company is a visually moving mosaic of the locations and events that influenced the story of Ignatius and his followers from the early years to the present.
