"The Ellsworth Outrage, 1854: Or How 19th Century Jesuits Built a Global Catholicism”

John T. McGreevy, I.A. O'Shaughnessy Dean, College of Arts and Letters, Professor of History.

How did modern Catholicism become global? The talk uses a violent attack on a Swiss Jesuit in a Maine small town to tell a story about globalization in the world's largest, most multicultural and multilingual institution.
