Price realised GBPAntonio Blado, 11 September Exceedingly rare first edition: The importance and influence of St Ignatius’s Spiritual Exercises cannot be overstated: Born Inigo Lopez de Recalde to a noble Basque family in the province of Guipuzcoa in Spain, St Ignatius led a normal youth but received his religious transformation as a young man.

He made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem inbut was sent back to Europe by the Franciscans. Inhe was in Paris during the period of anti-Protestant turmoil which forced John Calvin to flee France.

The organization that would grow up around him formed then, when a few followers bound themselves by vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience.

The Pope approved his Spiritual Exercises inthe year of this first edition. Loyola composed the Constitutions of the Society in his last year.

St Ignatius introduced many innovations when founding the Society of the Jesuit Order; the abandonment of such traditional forms of worship as chanting the divine office, a monarchical rather than collegiate constitution, and much simpler vows. These elements, together with the spiritual power of the Exercisesgave the Order its militant character and enabled it to exercise its great influence on the world.
