Two new essays are now available through Jesuit Historiography Online, an Open Access resource hosted by Brill.
The newest additions to Jesuit Historiography Online are:
- “The Dynamics of Anti-Jesuitism in the History of the Society of Jesus,” by Pierre-Antoine Fabre and José Eduardo Franco (link)
- “Between Religious Instruction and theatrum mundi: The Historiography of Jesuit Drama (Seventeenth to Twenty-First Centuries),” by Jost Eickmeyer (link)
The project will eventually consist of more than 70 scholarly essays that summarize the state of scholarship in the variety of fields in Jesuit Studies. The essays explore trends in Jesuit historiography and provide a nuanced, systematic, and in-depth analysis of what has been written—when, why, and by whom.
The full texts of the available essays are searchable through the Portal’s search engine. An interactive chart lists the essays and their authors: https://jesuitportal.bc.edu/research/jesuit-historiography/
The Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies provides the necessary financial support so that the project is available in Open Access.
