The Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola, are deeply rooted in the era of great classics such as “Golden Era” by Jacobus de Volragine O.P., “Meditations on the Life of Christ”, by Pseudo- Bonaventure and the “Life of Christ” by Ludolph of Saxony. It would appear that this last work gave the basic foundation for much of the exercises' layout & format, but it would a work, entitled “The Book of Exercises for the Spiritual Life" (Ejercitatorio de la Vida Espiritial) of Garcia de Cisneros, (a future work in the “Contemplative Series”, that gives both the final formulary, outlook & style. Denis the Carthusian, is believed “He is probably the unacknowledged source of much Jesuit Theology.”

“Spiritual Exercises” combined with a superb commentary on this work. To-date there is nothing quite like this work, which you are about to embark upon.
