As a young man, Inigo or Ignatius, like many of his companions, dreamt of an adventurous life. His dreams, however, never came true in the way he wanted them to be. Wounded in battle, he abandoned a promising career in the army and dedicated his life to the service of Christ and the Church. This book is a graphic account of his early adventures, his many encounters with popes, kings and emperors, and finally, the founding of the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits – for the spreading of the Gospel.
