Black Robes and Buckskin

A Selection from the Jesuit Relations

Catharine Randall

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • The Jesuit Relations, the letters written by seventeenth-century French Jesuits back to their European Superiors, are a fascinating historical document of contact between European and Native American peoples.
  • This book presents new translations, some of texts never before in English, in an idiomatic style that are easily accessible to readers on all levels.
  • The book's selections are arranged around categories of Ignatian spirituality, so the volume serves as an introduction to Jesuit spirituality, as well as to a portion of Jesuit history.
  • Early woodcuts provide illustrations to the text. Many are from the Fordham University library and have never before been reproduced.
