Cultural Literacy: Jesuits

This Cultural Literacy worksheet on the Jesuits is a full-page document, so it would serve well as an independent practice–i.e. homework–assignment if you think kids should know about this order.

It might be worth keeping in mind the adjective jesuitical, meaning  “practicing casuistry or equivocation; using subtle or oversubtle reasoning; crafty; sly; intriguing.” This turns up in academic and scholarly prose, and might help students understand why the Jesuits animated the Counter-Reformation and are today regarded, in some circles and to some degree, with suspicion.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
