The Jesuits produced more books on the topic of emblem studies than did any other identifiable group of writers, comprising a vast spectrum of subject matter with a wide diversity of structure and creating an enormous impact on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century culture. In his new book "Studies in the Jesuit Emblem", G. Richard Dimler has gathered together selections from his past studies in Jesuit emblems, spanning some 25 years. His revised articles incorporate, among others, a wide array of topics including our state of knowledge of the Jesuit emblem book, Jesuit emblem theory, the genesis and the rise of the Jesuit Emblem, Jesuit reaction to Andrea Alciato, the Imago Primi Saeculi, Edmund Arwaker's translation of the "Pia Desideria", as well as some specific Jesuit themes such as the bee-topos and the egg. Also included in the book are hitherto unpublished essays on Herman Hugo, the evolution of an Ignatiam emblem book, and a taxonomical inquiry into the eighteenth century Jesuit emblem.
