Jesuits have excelled at everything. This is no exaggeration. Jesuits have been brilliant scholars and practitioners in the fields of mathematics, paleontology, geology, cartography, philosophy, law, medicine, business administration, education, librarianship, and, of course, theology. It is not unexpected, then, that not a few Jesuits were exceptional in their artistic and literary endeavors. Of the literary genres, poetry was a particular creative vocation pursued by many among the Jesuits. The most well known poet in the English language is Gerard Manely Hopkins.
