Description
Summary:The little known Dutch Jesuit, Jasper Berse (1515-1553), was arguably one of the closest disciples of Francis Xavier. After various attempts to embark on lay careers, Berse entered the Society of Jesus in Portugal. The author derives material for this brief biography from letters and other writings of Berse. Of particular interest was his work in Ormuz (1549-1551) as a pioneer missionary. Even though he only spent eight years in the Society before his premature death at the age of 38, he served as Vice Provincial of the East Indies (1552-1553). Subsequent edifying biographies stressed his remarkable humility, apostolic fervour, and obedient service.
