1568 was the Compañia’s first presence in Peru and the Western Hemisphere: within thirty years of its foundation the order was settled in Lima and building already, at 3,100 metres, in Andahuaylas just below Cusco, the apse and sanctuary of San Pedro Apóstol, the first Jesuit church in the Americas.
Over the following two centuries the Compañia’s influential presence in terms of the essential bond between education, labour, and economic activity is pervasive: it covers much of suburban Lima as we now know it, likewise Trujillo and Cañete on either side up and down the coast, and Ayacucho up in the Andes.
What did the Jesuits quite do to Peru, and what does the termination of their presence there suggest about the sequel?
