The Catholic Reformation may be defined as "all that was done on the part of the Catholics to hinder the progress of the sixteenth century Reformation and to reconquer the already occupied regions." The lion's share of this work was done by the Jesuits. This order was founded in 1540, and this date is often given for the beginning of the Catholic Reformation. They functioned at peak performance in those countries in which the Reformation had made serious inroads. This was true for most of Germany. It is to one of the principalities of Germany - Bavaria, to which we turn our attention to observe the Jesuits at work.
