The Jesuit Order called the “Society of Jesus”, with around 19,216 (Jan 2007)
members spread all over the world, has taken up every conceivable form of work,
which may, in some way, lead people to total welfare. There are Jesuits working
as doctors, social activists, research scholars, scientists, astronomers,
architects, circus performers, movie actors, journalists, psychiatrists, besides
of course, the traditional work of teachers and preachers.
“In that world where faith and
power clash, the Society of Jesus has been the most fabled and fabulous, the
most admired and reviled, in the practice of both. Jesuits have been both a
puzzle and a model for the rest of the world. Friends and enemies, Catholics and
non-Catholics, have all tried to unravel 'the power and the secret' of these
religiously trained and devoted men who stand as giants in every secular pursuit
of mankind as well. In science and art, writing and exploration and teaching -
and not least in world politics - Jesuits always aimed to be the best. And they
were. They had a part to play in every major political alliance in Europe and
America, in Asia and Africa. They became shapers not only of religious history,
but of world history. Even Hitler and his Nazi generals dreamed of such a cadre
of men; and even Lenin envied them”.
- The Jesuits by Malachi Martin
The Indian mission of the Jesuits lies at the very origin of their Order. It
is to India that Ignatius of Loyola, the Founder of the Society of Jesus, sent
his greatest son, Francis Xavier, and to him and his collaborators, that he gave
that inspiration and those directives, which became the basis of the Jesuit
mission and method. India has also been the birthplace of missionary theories
and the testing ground of missionary policies.
Francis Xavier was the first
Jesuit to set foot on Indian soil on 6 May 1542. That day, he entered Goa in the
entourage of the new governor, Martin Affonso de Sousa, with whom he had sailed
from Lisbon. They were given a rousing welcome, and the natural beauty of the
Mandovi riverside, together with the imposing buildings, could not but move
Xavier. He took charge of the College of St Paul in Goa, started in 1541 by a
group of Portuguese. This college was the first educational institution in India
which became later the cornerstone of widespread Jesuit mission in education and
in other fields.
Robert De Nobili came to India
in 1605. Hailed by Max Muller as the “First European Sanskrit scholar”, he
mastered Tamil and Sanskrit and translated the Vedas and other Hindu Scriptures.
Constantine Beschi (1680-1747) occupies a special place in Tamil literature,
something that the fifth world Tamil Congress held at Madurai in January 1981
proudly acknowledged by erecting his statue in the city. Thomas Stevens
(1549-1600) has received accolades for his Kristaun Puran or Christian Purana,
an epic in 11,000 stanzas which scholars still hail as a masterpiece of Marathi
The Jesuits started the first
printing press in India in 1556. Antonio de Monserratte (1556-1600) was the
first person, after Ptolemy, to make a map of India. Joseph Tieffenthaller
(1710-1785) was the first geographer to draw up a fairly accurate map of the
Ganges. His Historical Geographical Description of India contains accurate
descriptions of Indian birds, trees, plants and flowers that he studied during
his 29-year-long tour of the region and also as a result of astronomical and
geographical observations he made during those wanderings. The Jaipur
astronomical library stands as a tribute to his work.
Fr Richard at Pondicherry used a telescope for the first time on Indian soil in
1689. He discovered the binary nature of the star Alpha Centauri. Fr Manuel de
Firueredo, emissary of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh of Jaipur to the King of
Portugal, was largely responsible for the Jaipur and Delhi Observatories,
impressive monuments, built between 1724 and 1735 respectively.
Fr Jerome D'Souza of Madras was a member of the Indian Constituent Assembly and
four times India's delegate to the UN General Assembly.
Frs Ethelbert, Blatter and
Henry Santapau were well known in botanical circles for their contribution to
Indian botany. The internationally acclaimed Herbarium at St Xavier's College,
Mumbai was established by them and was later named as Blatter herbarium. Fr
Santapau became the first chief of the Botanical Survey of India and remained
chief for six years. He was awarded the Padma Shri by the Government of India
and the Birbal Sahani Medal by the Indian Botanical Society in 1964 for his
services to Indian botany.
Fr C Bulke, a Belgian, India's
most famous Christian Hindi scholar, enriched the Hindi and Sanskrit languages
by his writings. He was an authority on the Rama theme and a well known
lexicographer. The Government of India awarded him the Padma Bhushan in 1974 in
recognition of his contribution to Hindi research and language.
Fr Eugene Lafont of St Xaviers
College, Kolkata, has the distinction of introducing modern science into India
with his knowledge of experimental physics and his ability to popularise science
among the people. He was called the Father of Science in India. Sir JC Bose and
Dr CV Raman found encouragement for their introduction to science in the person
of Fr Lafont.
Reform of calendar
Matteo Ricci went to China and mastered Chinese. He rapidly became a mandarin
and an advisor to the Emperor, a post held by generations of other Jesuits who
succeeded him. Ricci was the first westerner to master Chinese and translate
some of that country's classics into western languages. Alexander de Rhodes
first gave Vietnamese a script. A Jesuit botanist, Jiri Kamel, working in
Manila, gave the world the Camelia; while one of the lunar craters is named
after the Jesuit astronomer, Christopher Clavius who was also largely
responsible for the reform of the calendar resulting in the Gregorian calendar
now in universal use.
The Jesuits in Latin America
not only discovered cinchona, also known as Jesuit's bark, from which quinine is
derived, but also worked mightily to protect the Indian tribes from the
depredations of the Spanish colonists by forming them into self-contained
communities which would be able to feed, house, clothe and protect themselves.
The most celebrated example of this work are the famous “Jesuit reductions of
Paraguay”, which is very beautifully portrayed in the famous film Mission by
Ronald Joffe and acted by Robert de Niro.
Three of the most famous
Jesuits of recent times have been Gerard Manley Hopkins, the poet and founder of
the Romantic movement in English poetry; Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, the
renowned paleontologist and mystic whose thought responds to a deeper human urge
of today, the need to integrate science and human progress with the world of the
spirit; and Karl Rahner, one of the greatest theologians of the Catholic Church.
Schools and colleges
They run no less than 31 university colleges, nine institutes of business
administration and 155 high schools spread throughout the country, almost all of
them among its most reputed. More than 400,000 students belonging to every
religious, linguistic and socio-economic group receive their education.

SXCCAA International Convention
The first international convention of the St Xavier's College Calcutta Alumni
Association, in Bangkok, was a mix of work and fun.
Held over two days, on July 24
and 25, ‘Beyond Boundaries I’ saw over 150 Xaverians from across the world
discuss everything from the road ahead for the college and the SXCCAA to the
Speaking at the inaugural session, industrialist and alumni Pawan Ruia pledged
to erect a new building for the college, which is in expansion mode, in the
150th year of the institution. Members of the SXCCAA donated Rs 50 lakh for the
addition of a new floor to the existing hostel complex, that will be dedicated
to postgraduate courses being offered by the college.
“The alumni, including Ruia, came forward with their assistance while we were
discussing the roadmap for the college — St. Xavier's in 2020,” said Father
Felix Raj, the principal of the college and the president of the SXCCAA.
The alumni association also
raised Rs 5 lakh as scholarship for poor students of the college.
While discussions, seminars and business meetings dominated the days, the
evenings were reserved for cultural programmes.
A special programme, 'Seemar
Majhe Asim Tumi', based on songs and poems from Rabindranath Tagore's Gitanjali,
was presented as a tribute to the former Xaverian. This is the centenary year of
publication of the Bengali version of the volume.
The performance was conceived,
directed and led by police commissioner and Xaverian Gautam Mohan Chakrabarti.
Designer Agnimitra Paul joined him in the recitation and narration.
The programme also included
performances by Toronto-based dancer and choreographer Sukalyan, actress
Swastika Mukherjee and Xaverians Bickram Ghosh and Pandit Subhen Chatterjee.
A fashion show by Agnimitra
Paul, showcasing Indian ethnic wear with showstopper Rituparna Sengupta,
attended by Xaverians as well as the local Indian and Thai communities, was the
finishing touch for the two-day convention.
