Abstract

This article marks the fourth centenary of the death of St Peter Canisius, the founder of the Innsbruck Jesuitenkolleg (21. 12. 1997). In the first part, the author sketches the religious situation of the Tyrol in the mid-sixteenth century. It was very bad. Both the higher and lower clergy gave cause for much complaint, and the teaching of the Reformers found many adherents. The second part is about the difficult negotiations which led to the foundation of the Jesuitenkolleg in Innsbruck. In these, Peter Canisius, heading a Province encompassing Germany, Switzerland and Austria, had to deal with the Emperor Ferdinand I and the local government in Innsbruck. The second part also deals with Peter Canisius's intense efforts to obtain from the Society of Jesus's General government in Rome priests suitable for the Jesuitenkolleg, which was opened in 1562, and for the school attached to it. It then describes the Jesuits' first activities as, starting from Innsbruck, they spread throughout the Tyrol.
