Roundtable Discussion: Material Cultures of Devotion in Early Modern Jesuit Missions
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.
