Food and Jesuits in the Early Modern Western World.

Claudio Ferlan

Abstract


Abstract. Despite the host of studies dealing with the Society of Jesus, there has not yet been proper coverage of the order’s connection with food. This simple thought, which I will try to flesh out in the pages that follow, is the reason why I thought fit to suggest a few possible lines of research based on personal investigation, currents of history-writing and, last but not least, Jesuit sources (published or otherwise). The essay’s main purpose is to go into some essential aspects of negotiations between individuals and cultural models via the study of specific habits and rules relating to food, thereby improving our knowledge of western Christianity.
