Chapter Summary

The author offers an interpretation of the time leading up to the Election as an initiation into an art concerned with the production of a dyad linking a stream of images and a series of motions. He touches upon a number of issues that take center stage in the existing scholarship on the Exercises; the significance of reflection on sin, the applicatio, the language of motions, and the possibility that Ignatius is responsible for a theologia affectus. These are more of less 'classic' issues aims to place them, in relation to the problem of use, animated as it is by the conviction that the structure of the Exercises in itself reveals something about the relation between its parts. Ignatius' assessment of the two theologies can encourage perception that the Exercises owe more to the writings of the scholastics, and at first sight the evidence seems to point in that direction.
