This chapter has two primary goals. First, it lifts up the active engagement of women in the ministries of the Society of Jesus, through which they became teachers by example—keeping in mind the social, ecclesial context of sixteenth-century Europe. Second, it contrasts this portrait with the image of women found in Hugo Rahner's Saint Ignatius Loyola: Letters to Women. There are 139 extant letters exchanged between Ignatius and women—89 written by Ignatius, 50 written by women. The chapter focuses on the letters to and from Ignatius, and female royalty, nobility, and select friends.

Keywords:   Society of Jesus, women, ministries, teachers, Hugo Rahner, Saint Ignatius Loyola, letters
