“This collection works for two overlapping audiences. First for historians of early modern Ireland and second for those drawn to the “mission” territories of Europe, to those places where the Society stood outside the law of the land. Every single article in this elegantly edited volume turns over new ground. Every single article evokes the promise of new work. Accompanied by an agenda-setting introduction and a bespoke bibliography this book is a true vademecum. Go with it.” John McCafferty, Journal of Jesuit Studies 2023 (2023)

“this is an exemplary piece of humane and therefore comprehendible scholarship. Besides their undoubted academic merit, these 11 glimpses of early modern Ireland through a Jesuit prism are hearteningly illuminating if (like me) you have been too-often baffled by the period.” Patrick Hudson, The Tablet, 14th January 2023

“[a] groundbreaking volume ... [this volume] is further testament to the renaissance in the study of early modern Catholicism which is evident for some years now ... [it] deserves a place on the shelves of all institutional libraries, and in the personal libraries of all serious scholars in this field of study”. Salvador Ryan, Irish Theological Quarterly 88 (4)
