The 1540 List

In September 1540, St. Ignatius of Loyola and six companions lit the flame that would become the Society of Jesus.

Together, these young men explored the intersections of faith and culture. Love and learning. Human nature and all of its many possibilities.

Through service, solidarity and prayer, the Jesuits (as they are known today) were welcomed around the globe as men of wisdom and science, education and 
spiritual depth.


With The 1540 List, we recognize 15 St. Louis University High alumni under the age of 40 who—like the young, creative and bold leaders who came before them—are challenging our definitions of excellence, and setting the world on fire.
