The Spaniard Alfonso Salmerón (1515–1585) was one of the closest companions of Ignatius Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus, and he played an active role in the affairs of the order in its early life in Paris and later in Italy. Salmerón and Loyola met at the Sorbonne in 1536, where they were studying theology. Not long afterwards, with a few other friends, they founded the Society of Jesus.
