The symposium, held in Nairobi, was hosted by Jesuit Historical Institute in Africa (JHIA) in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies. The event was the second annual gathering of scholars organized by the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies, which is also responsible for presenting this volume in Open Access.
The symposium examined the history of Jesuit and Protestant encounters in Africa. Keynote addresses were delivered by Festo Mkenda, S.J., of JHIA, and Robert Maryks of Boston College. These essays serve as the published book’s introduction remarks.
