Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), dies. Seriously wounded by a cannon ball, he had to undergo several operations to save his legs; while recuperating, he read a commentary on Jesus Christ which completely transformed his life.

Ignatius Loyola left behind the life of a soldier and became a zealous and passionate defender of Church doctrine. Part of his new life included founding the Jesuit Order which becomes an important part of the Counter-Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church.
