Inscription.  1666-1677 von den Jesuiten als Ordenskirche erbaut und 1756-1757 durch einen westlich gelegenen Flügel mit dem Kollegium verbunden. Die Pläne zur Kirche schuf vermutlich Pater Christoph Volger unter Mitwirkung von Bruder Heinrich Mayer, der die Innenausstattung entwarf.
Als erste grosse Barockkirche der Schweiz wirkte sie inspirierend und wegleitend. Wegen ihrer hervorragenden Ausstattung gehört sie zu den bedeutenden Werken barocker Sakralarchitektur.
1949 wurde der östlich an die Kirche angrenzende spätgotische << Freienhof >> abgebrochen. 1978 erstellte man in Anlehnung an die Originalpläne den Vorplatz.
Unter Denkmalschutz seit 1969
Restauriert 1957-1958 und 1974-1980
