This chapter reviews the book The University of Mantua, the Gonzaga, and the Jesuits, 1584–1630 (2009), by Paul F. Grendler. Grendler offers an account of the University of Mantua and Gonzaga University, both founded by the Jesuits. He looks at the rise of Mantua's university, placing it within its more general political context, and recounts the Jesuits' first attempts to enter the universities across Italy. He also tackles the careers and recruitment of Giacomo Antonio Marta and Fabrizio Bortoletti, as well as the organisation of teaching for both the secular and the Jesuit sections of Mantua. Other topics include medicine and chemistry and the teaching of Tacitus.

Keywords:   teaching, medicine, chemistry, Paul F. Grendler, University of Mantua, Gonzaga University, Jesuits, Italy, Giacomo Antonio Marta, Fabrizio Bortoletti
