This chapter shares the authors' fascination with Mary's formative influence on Ignatius, which arose during a pilgrimage on which they visited important spiritual sites in Spain and Rome. European images of Mary differ dramatically from her conventional iconic depiction, often portraying increased agency through eye contact or positioning with respect to the viewer or other figures in the work of art. They contend that viewing these lesser-known representations of Mary and uncovering her role as a “hidden catalyst” in Ignatius's spiritual life allow us to appreciate more fully the need for more gender-balanced discussions both in scholarship and in the classroom.
