The Jesuits had also made the pre-existing practice of confession a much bigger deal. Because of other reasons, such as their reputation for running schools (based upon the Classical pagan curriculum of the ratio studeorum) they became the personal 'confessors' for most of Europe's royalty and Catholic nobility. In the process they became notorious for injecting themselves into secular (if I can really use that word here) political intriques, which became the pretext ruse for the Disestablishment. Intriques such as the infamous Gunpowder Plot with Guy Fawkes, and the claim that the Jesuits had assassinated Earl Fernandino Stanley after he refused their desire to have him assume the crown after deposing Elizabeth I. Maybe this had something to do with Stanley's greatgrandfather being Elizabeth's step-greatgrandfather, having helped put Henry VII on the throne?The suppression of the Jesuits in the Portuguese Empire (1759), France (1764), the Two Sicilies, Malta, Parma and the Spanish Empire (1767) is a highly controversial subject. It has been argued that it was a result of a series of political moves in each polity rather than a theological controversy. Monarchies attempting to centralize and secularize political power viewed the Jesuits as being too international, too strongly allied to the papacy, and too autonomous from the monarchs in whose territory they operated.
Funny that these supposed Jews in the SoJ established a widespread and relatively respected school system based upon pagan knowledge that stems back to Pythagorean Harmonics and such. Sneaky devils.
As Saussy discussed, the Jesuits also quietly took up crypt-residence in the new USA (and Catholic Quebec), having just become "the enemy of our enemy", that is the papacy who had suppressed the Jesuits. This is one reason that American Catholicism is significantly different that the rest of the world's Catholicism in measures such as social liberality and such.
Saussy discusses what happened to the Jesuit Black Pope (Richie?) at the time of the suppression, who vanished after having been imprisoned for a short period. He compared the attributes of this man to the description in an account of the Constitutional Convention about an otherwise anonymous old man that made a lot of suggestions to those designing the Constitution.
Of course, people in general, much less the nobility, were not greatly enthused to have to go to confession, where they might be subject to blackmail and coercion based upon with the revealed. And whatever the case with that, such confessions from the right people would be very useful for an erstwhile intelligence agency - operating under the cover of religion.
