While discernment of spirits continued to be mentioned in Christian spiritual literature through the centuries, not until St.
Ignatius Loyola articulated his Rules for Discernment of Spirits in the Spiritual Exercises did the Christian Community have a concise set of principles for the discernment process itself. Ignatius of Loyola — was born into minor nobility in the Basque country of northern Spain. After being raised and trained in the courts he grew into a young man enchanted by the glamour of courtly life, fiercely determined in his quest for worldly honor and glory. Bedridden he requested reading materials, but only a life of Christ and a book about the saints could be found.
After reading these religious works Ignatius began to reflect on the peculiar movement of his feelings—noting how he felt when he would daydream about achieving worldly glory as opposed to how he felt when he considered trying to imitate the heroism of the saints and giving up everything to follow Christ. When he realized that thinking about worldly glory consoled and excited him but left him dissipated afterwards, while thoughts about following Christ gave him a more lasting consolation and peace, Ignatius determined to turn his heart and mind to the path of Christ.
This was his first discernment and led to a fantastic journey from his Basque homeland to Manresa, Jerusalem, Paris, and eventually Rome where he founded the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits. The first stop on that journey was the now famous cave in Manresa where Ignatius spent the better part of a year in intense prayer and asceticism while begging for his meager support.
He noted that God seemed to be treating him like a schoolboy, teaching him the most elementary notions of the spiritual life. The ultimate result of his year at Manresa was the crafting of the Spiritual Exercises by which he would lead others through similar but abbreviated experiences.
