Saturday Scholars: "The Ellsworth Outrage, 1854: Or How 19th Century Jesuits Built a Global Catholicism"
You are invited to experience an intimate discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty speakers on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times. Each lecture and Q&A is presented on a "home game" Saturday.
"The Ellsworth Outrage, 1854: Or How 19th Century Jesuits Built a Global Catholicism" is presented by John T. McGreevy, I.A. O'Shaughnessy Dean, College of Arts and Letters, Professor of History.
How did modern Catholicism become global? The talk uses a violent attack on a Swiss Jesuit in a Maine small town to tell a story about globalization in the world's largest, most multicultural and multilingual institution.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
