If Jesuit theology is taken to mean a brand of theology distinctive and common to all Jesuits, no such thing exists. Jesuits do not follow any method proper to their Society, nor do they take any member of their own order as their theological mentor in the way that Augustinians might presumably follow St. Augustine, Dominicans might follow St. Thomas, and Franciscans might follow St. Bonaventure or Duns Scotus. From:‘‘Jesuits and Theology: Yesterday and Today,’’ Theological Studies 52 (1991), p. 524. by Avery Cardinal Dulles, S.J. (1918-2008).
