Painting of St Ignatius of Loyola, 1491-1556, founder of the Society of Jesus or Jesuit Order, on his deathbed with a priest administering Last Rites, by Jean Helart, 1618-85, French painter, in the wooden panelling of the refectory of the Ancien College des Jesuites or Former Jesuit College in Reims, Marne, Champagne-Ardenne, France. The scene reflects the event as described in a letter from Jesuit Jean Polanco to his superior in Rome, P Ribadeneira. The College was built 1619-78 and is now the Euro-American campus of Sciences Po, or the Institut d'Etudes politiques de Paris, and the FRAC Champagne-Ardenne. It is listed as a historic monument.
