Abstract

The «Varones Ilustres de la Compañía de Jesús» (1643-1667) study, a work of the Spanish Jesuits Juan Eusebio Nieremberg and Alonso de Andrade, let us to know the keys of the baroque hagiographic discourse in the construction of a community identity inside the order and, what is more, let us discover a politic reading in the life of some members, with a special attention to the Jesuits generals, in a politic and religious crisis context lived by the Jesus Company in Spain in Felipe IV times.
