Classroom - CL 130
In this interdisciplinary session, the distinguished historian and scholar of religion Luca Codignola-Bo explores how Catholic archival records in the Vatican can provide new transnational approaches to Canadian religious history. Specifically, his presentation will focus on the question: what did it mean to be "Roman" Catholic during the period 1783-1830? To provide an answer, Codignola-Bo will present case studies of young Canadian and American priests who traveled back and forth between Rome and North America. These illuminating case studies – often at the margins of mainstream historiography – will provide fresh insights into the truly global nature of Catholic history and mission.
Speakers: Luca Codignola-Bo, Senior Fellow, Cushwa Center, University of Notre Dame
