Material Cultures of Devotion in Early Modern Jesuit Missions: A Roundtable Discussion
April 26th 3:00pm
Fine Print Room, Burns Library
Boston College

This roundtable will examine the functions of sacred objects in three very different Jesuit missions from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries - England, China, and Northeastern America - to compare the devotional, social, and sometimes political significance that sacred objects acquired in different geographical and cultural circumstances. The event will feature an exhibit of relics and sacramental objects from Burns Library's Liturgy and Life Collection, a unique collection of historical devotional materials donated by Catholic communities across the United States.

Speakers:
Laura Masur (Boston University) – Sacred Objects in the Archaeological Record of the Maryland Mission
Eugenio Menegon (Boston University) – Healing and Converting: The Power of Sacred Objects in the China Jesuit Mission
Aislinn Muller (Boston College) – Sacramentals, Dissent, and Resistance in Jesuit Missions to Early Modern England
