About the Author

St. Peter Canisius, or Petrus Canisius, was born in 1541 and became the first Dutchman to join the Jesuits order of the Society of Jesus. He oversaw the founding of the early German Jesuit colleges, and many praise his work as saving Catholicism in Germany after the Reformation. A popular teacher and preacher, his Sum of Christian Doctrine was published into 15 languages during his lifetime.
