Way Books publishes new translation of Ignatian Spirituality
13 Jun 2016
Way Books has published Ignatian Spirituality: A Selection of Continental Studies in Translation, edited and translated by Joseph A. Munitiz, SJ.
This book makes available in English a group of essays by important writers from continental Europe on spirituality in the Ignatian tradition. Most of the essays in this collection first appeared in The Way, a journal founded just before Vatican II in response to a growing interest in spirituality - and Ignatian spirituality in particular.
The essays have been chosen from articles by Manresa, Christus and other continental European journals and translated from Spanish and French, and together they provide a fascinating introduction to the range and development of continental thought on Ignatian spirituality over the past half century.
Those familiar with developments in the study of the Spiritual Exercises in Britain and North America in these decades will notice both parallels and contrasts here. The collection will also be of help to the growing number of retreat givers and spiritual directors.
The translator, the Rev’d Joseph A. Munitiz SJ, has been a Jesuit since 1950 and is now retired, but acting as a Librarian and Archivist of Campion Hall, Oxford.
