News at the Institute
The Portal now presents free access to all the decrees and statements from General Congregations 31-35.
The Institute will soon welcome applications for the Certificate in Jesuit Studies program, which will begin in June 2018.
The Institute welcomes Elisa Frei and Francisco Malta Romeiras as its new in-residence fellows this fall.
In the coming months, selected presentations from the 2016 International Symposium on Jesuit Studies held in Kenya will be available in Open Access. The symposium was co-sponsored by the Jesuit Historical Institute of Africa and the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College.
The volume will feature introductions by the book’s two editors: Robert Aleksander Maryks on “Protestantism and Early Jesuits” and Festo Mkenda, S.J. on “Jesuits, Protestants, and Africa before the Twentieth Century.” Nine scholarly essays follow, focusing on the “Memories of Earlier Missions,” “Encounters in Southern Africa,” and “Encounters in Madagascar, Congo, and Fernando Po.”
The book will be published by Brill, as part of the Jesuit Studies book series, and will be made freely available in Open Access by the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies.
