May 2019: Grendler’s Feore Lecture Published in the Archivum

The most recent of the Archivum historicum Societatis Iesu, the biannual peer reviewed journal published at the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu, includes a revised version of Paul Grendler’s 2018 Feore Lecture on Jesuit Studies. At that lecture, Grendler received the George E. Ganss, S.J., Award in Jesuit Studies to note his significant contributions to the field of Jesuit Studies.


Grendler’s lecture, as it appears in the Archivum, is entitled: “An Historian’s Journey to Jesuit Education.” It is available in open access. The volume’s research articles are also available in open access: David Aeby’s “Un antijésuitisme issu des missions d’Asie dans le diocèse de Lausanne: Les Lettres édifiantes et curieuses de l’abbé Pierre-François Favre (1746)”; and Ana Carolina Hosne’s “In the Shadow of Cathay: A Survey of European Encounters in Discerning, Mapping, and Exploring Tibet during the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries.”


The Archivum has published Grendler’s piece in its new “Living History” section. As noted in previously in the journal, this section is dedicated to “important subjects pertaining to the Society of Jesus’s recent collective memory” and consists of a “more diverse range of styles and approaches compared to those appearing under the ‘Articles’ section.” The full summary of Grendler’s contribution appears below.


The citation for the publication appears in the Jesuit Online Bibliography:


On 2 October 2018, Professor Paul F. Grendler delivered the fourth annual 2018 Feore Family Lecture on Jesuit Studies at Boston College, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, USA. At that time he received the George E. Ganss, S.J. Award for his “scholarly contributions to the field of Jesuit Studies” from the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies of Boston College. This is the text of the lecture. It has been slightly revised to add a handful of footnotes and to delete local references and comments about North American universities. A biographical note and bibliography of Prof. Grendler’s Publications in Jesuit Educational History follow the article.
