PAGE, Carlos A.. Of Jesuit beatas and beaterios in the Province of Paraguay, 17th-18th centuries. Región y sociedad [online]. 2018, vol.30, n.73, 0011. ISSN 2448-4849.

In Society of Jesus’ Constitutions it was established that women could not join this community. However, independent congregations of women that followed Jesuit rules were created worldwide. Here, some examples are given in order to achieve the article’s aim, which is to investigate about the beatas featured in the Jesuit documentation of the Province of Paraguay. Difficulties arising from the fact that other sources are not available are admitted. In this sense, some women virtually unknown in religious historiography are now revealed, and, in turn, an interest in their environment, beaterios, has grown, this contributing to the understanding of their way of spiritual life. Only one of these was mentioned in the inventories of Temporalities throughout the province, which is why the aim is to inquire about the origin, description and fate of the building.

Palavras-chave : women in religion; religiosity; beatas; beaterios; Society of Jesus-history; Jesuit Province of Paraguay; retreat houses.
