Wednesday, March 19: The Jesuits and Liturgy, with John Baldovin, S.J., Boston College School of Ministry. Jesuits have made important contributions to the study and formation of the liturgy. Baldovin is an internationally recognized specialist on the liturgy. Among his books are Reforming the Liturgy, Liturgical Press, 2008.
Wednesday, March 26: The Suppression of the Society of Jesus: Its Causes and Consequences, with Tom Lucas S.J., Rector of the Jesuit Community and University Professor, Seattle University.
Wednesday, April 9: The Jesuits in China, with Paul Mariani, S.J., Professor of History, University of Santa Clara. The Jesuit influence in China was far reaching in the arts (the famous Jesuit artist, Castiglione) and in science. Jesuits drew the first maps delineating the borders between China and Russia. Part of the reason for the suppression of the Jesuits was because they fostered a non-Latin Chinese rite for liturgy. Mariani is the author of the award winning book, Church Militant: Bishop Kung and Catholic Resistance in Communist China, Harvard University Press, 2011.
