Abstract: This paper explores the socio-anthropological implications of print technology as it was employed by the Jesuits in the Sixteenth century. McLuhan's "The Gutenberg Galaxy" with its often forgotten subtitle, "The Making of Typographic Man," aptly describes the environment in which the Society of Jesus was established, and the cultural transformation that the pedagogy of the Jesuits made possible.
