“The Jesuits, Father Sorin, and the 19th-Century Catholic Revival” will be presented by John T. McGreevy, I.A. O’Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters and professor of history at the University of Notre Dame.
Dean McGreevy’s publications include Parish Boundaries: The Catholic Encounter with Race in the Twentieth-Century Urban North (University of Chicago Press), and Catholicism and American Freedom: A History (W.W. Norton). His current project is a study of the 19th-century Jesuits and what they tell us about religious controversy, the “Catholic revival,” and the transatlantic dimensions of American religion.
This lecture is part of a year-long celebration of the bicentennial of the birth of Father Edward Sorin, C.S.C., founder of the University of Notre Dame.
