BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY : WHY POPE FRANCIS 1. MUST MAKE AN APOLOGY TO AFRICAN AMERICAN FOR THE SLAVE OWNING JESUITS CATHOLIC SLAVE OWNERS IN AMERICA.:
the Jesuits of the Maryland Province had always relied on plantation to support there ministries. The estates were extensive, totaling 12,000 acres in 1634. When the Jesuits arrive in Maryland, Lord Baltimore awarded them quasi-estates in which they were permitted to live off the rent of tenant farmers. However the system was totally antiquated and romantic not related to reality and they realized they were not going to make any money so the Jesuits turned to indentured servants from Europe. As the indentured servant dropped off the Jesuits once again found a new way to work the land. By the 1680's they relied upon a fully developed slave system. Compared to other plantation owners in the area when it came to slavery, the Jesuits slave owners were no better or wore than them.
