Students and scholars from all over the world at the Gregorian University, the biggest Jesuit university in Rome. The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, Soldiers of Christ, and Foot soldiers of the Pope, was founded by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1540, who was himself a knight before becoming a priest. The Jesuits are involved in many realms of work, but are best known for their involvement in education, human rights, intellectual research and social justice.
