Jesuit Church

Description

The Jesuit monastery was founded in 1561. In the 17th century a baroque church was erected, which houses the graves of Archduke Leopold II and his family,and of many famous Jesuit priests like Karl Rahner.
1592 Saint Petrus Canisius founded the Jesuit College,including a high school, at the request of Emperor Ferdinand I.1619 construction of the church began,but it collapsed in 1626 1627 construction of an even bigger church commenced, funded by Archduke Leopold V. and his wife Claudia of Medici, who are buried in the church's crypt.
The church was renovated again in 1633 and finally completed in 1754.1773 A decree signed under secular pressure by Pope Clement XIV suppressed the Order of the Jesuits, hence the church became state property and was turned into a University church.
1838 The community of the Jesuits is re-established and the Jesuits return to Innsbruck and again take over their church.
