Lecture: Prayer as Action - Expanding the Boundaries of Religious Practice

-

Location: C103 Hesburgh Center for International Studies

Tanya Schwarz, Kroc Institute Visiting Research Fellow, will present this lecture. 

What are the meanings and roles of prayer for transnational faith-based organizations working in areas of peacebuilding, broadly defined? In international relations, and political science, more broadly, religious expression and practice are often assumed to be outside the realm of consequential and legitimate political action. In analyzing the meanings and roles of prayer for three faith-based peacebuilding organizations—Religions for Peace, International Justice Mission, and the Taizé Community—Schwarz uncovers how and why religious practices are included in the internal everyday activities of such organizations as well as in their transnational projects with local communities, other organizations, and governments. …

Italian Research Seminar: John Paul II’s Canonization Policy - the Italian Case

-

Location: Special Collections, Hesburgh Library

The first talk in the spring 2017 series will be given by Valentina Ciciliot, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism.

The expression “canonization policy”, though not unanimously accepted by Catholic historiography, indicates the presence of a particular papal project behind canonization – one that is not just pastoral, but also political. This concept is highly applicable to the approach of pope John Paul II, who declared a significant number of “blessed” (1342, 968 men and 374 women) and “saints” (482, 375 men and 125 women) during his pontificate (1978-2005). This amount constitutes more than half of all saints proclaimed by the Catholic Church from the establishment of the Congregation of Rites (1588). The sheer numbers involved point compellingly to canonization being turned into an active instrument of ecclesiastical governance.
