Relations and Other Documents

28 Aug

Paul Le Jeune

_

On August 28, 1632, Paul Le Jeune sent his first report of mission work and Iroquois life to the Provincial of the Jesuit Order in France, Father Bartholémy Jacquinot.  It was an account of his trip to the New World.

The first of the annual Jesuit Relations, spanning 40 years in the life of New France.  He was Superior of the Jesuits in Québec from 1632 to 1639.

To read The Jesuit Relations and Allied Documents 1610 to 1791, you can find them at Creighton University – there is a lot there, but worth the visit!
