Ignatius signed his name as “Ignatino L"[edit]

It seems he signed his name as “Ignatino L”. Why is it Ignatino? Is that how he was called? Not Ignacio?

His real name was Inigo Lopez.

After undergoing a profound conversion experience, discussed below, he became a stellar example of the kind of great-spirited person that Friedrich Nietzsche later envisioned as an Ubermensch.

Did Nietzsche mention Loyola explicitly ? If not, this should be removed, as mere speculation.

Death in the section about his conversion[edit]

It says he died on the 11th of September 2001? Clearly this is wrong. (talk) 23:38, 15 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Shouldn't we mention Ignatius of Loyola's tendency toward scrupulosity and intrusive thought (if not obsessive–compulsive disorder) in this article, if only briefly? This aspect of his personality is documented in the historical record and has been discussed by scholars. (talk) 20:06, 23 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
