The last historian of the Jesuit Order, the one who brought down their own history of themselves to about 1652, since when it has not been continued lived to see the suppression of the order in 1773. He has left us his opinion as to why they were put down, why the Almighty allowed so useful a society to be extinguished; and he comes to the conclusion that it is on account of their pride. 'We have been inordinately proud,' he confesses; 'we have set ourselves above everything, every institution and every office. We have assumed our own superiority, and have treated all other orders and societies with contempt. Pride has been the cause of our fall.'
