Four Turning Points in Jesuit History

We have uploaded the audio recording of the public lecture delivered by Prof. Paul Shore at the St Aloysius Sixth Form Auditorium, on Monday 7th April at 7.00pm.



 

The Four Turning Points touched upon: 

(a) Ignatius hanging up his sword on an altar to the Virgin and commencing his "pilgrim's journey" 
 
(b) The Chinese Rites controversy and the attack on Jesuit flexibility and outreach to non-Europeans 
 
(c) The resurrection of the SJ in 1814 and its efforts to adapt its previously baroque culture to the 19th cen. Romanticism, nationalism, etc. 
 

(d) Some of the writings of Karl Rahner and the intellectual climate that led to Vatican II and the transformation of the SJ into its present form(s).
