Jesuitica — That’s What You Will Find in our November Book Display

Saint Joseph’s University was founded 1851 by the Society of Jesus (The Jesuits). Jesuits work in education (founding schools, colleges, universities, and seminaries), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits.  And while an entire library could be filled with books authored by Jesuits or about Jesuits, our 3-tier book display presents an overview. Subject matter ranges from historical backgrounds to application of principles on a personal level through the lived life of someone such as Pope Francis.

For a list of the titles in the catalog, see Jesuitica. Or, better yet, stop by and check one out!
