Interestingly enough, a wikipedia history of this church notes that “Although Michelangelo, at the request of the Spanish cardinal Bartolomeo de la Cueva, offered, out of devotion, to design the church for free, the endeavor was funded by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese grandson of Pope Paul III. the pope who had authorized the founding of the Society of Jesus.” Construction began in 1568.
The Jesuits were suppressed worldwide in 1773 by Pope Clement XIV but restored 41 years later by Pope Pius VII.
