Encounters between Jesuits and Protestants in Africa (2016)

In June 2016, the International Symposium on Jesuit Studies took place at the Jesuit Historical Institute of Africa and Madagascar in Nairobi, Kenya.


Emerging from the second symposium, Encounters between Jesuits and Protestants in Africa offers two introductory essays (one by Robert Maryks and the other by Festo Mkenda, S.J.) and 12 chapters. Due to support from the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies, the book’s contents appear in open access, and its chapters are available for download at no cost.
