The Church of the Gesù (Italian: Chiesa del Gesù; Italian pronunciation: [ˈkjɛːza del dʒeˈzu; ˈkjeː-]) is the mother church of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a Catholic religious order. The Church of the Gesù is located in the Piazza del Gesù in Rome. Officially named Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Gesù all’Argentina (English: Church of the Most Holy Name of Jesus at the “Argentina”), its facade is “the first truly baroque façade”, introducing the baroque style into architecture. The church served as a model for innumerable Jesuit churches all over the world, especially in the Americas. Its paintings in the nave, crossing and side chapels became models for Jesuit churches throughout Italy and Europe, as well as those of other orders.. (Wikipedia, 2018)
