Boeve, Lieven – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2019

Sánchez-Tabernero, Alfonso; Torralba, José M. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018

Madero, Cristobal – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018

The Jesuit project of education in India that began with St Francis Xavier and flourished due to the support of colonial masters at its establishment was distinctive in its aims and objectives.

It is precisely this context that has evoked the call…
