Author, Historian and Notre Dame Professor to Speak at MTSM01.15.21
Dr. John McGreevy, author, American historian and the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame, will speak on February 24 at 7:30 pm at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary & School of Theology (MTSM). Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this lecture will be conducted virtually and will be available via www.athenaeum.edu/live.
Dr. McGreevy’s lecture, “From the Local to the Global: How the 19th Century Built a Worldwide Catholic Faith,” will focus on the growth of Catholicism in the 1800s. Part of the growth began in Cincinnati as new patterns of how Catholics understood their church and the world around them became more evident. Drawing on the research for his upcoming book, Catholicism: A Global History from the French Revolution to Pope Francis, Dr. McGreevy will connect local events to the wider Catholic world.
Dr. McGreevy joined the University of Notre Dame’s faculty in 1997. He served as Chair of the Department of History from 2002–2008 and Dean of the College of Arts and Letters from 2008–2018. He is the author of three books: Parish Boundaries: The Catholic Encounter with Race in the 20th Century Urban North, Catholicism and American Freedom: A History and American Jesuits and the World: How an Embattled Religious Order Made Modern Catholicism Global. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Notre Dame and his Doctor of Philosophy degree from Stanford University.
MTSM hosts two public lectures a year and our next one is scheduled for October 6 by Robert P. George. Mr. George is the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence and Director of the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University. He is also frequently a visiting professor at Harvard Law School.
