The Pedagogy of Martyrdom: Moral and Theological Education in the Baroque Society of Jesus.
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Catherine Burke.
First in a this seminar series
The seventeenth century Jesuits sought to perpetuate the values of their baroque Society through narratives and illustrations that glorified dramatic self-sacrifice and spectacular martyrdom. Yet their relationship to the physical world was far from simply adversarial. While calling upon their own members to risk their own physical bodies, the Jesuits simultaneously elevated and valued material creation, thereby leaving a complicated legacy for their students and for later educational theorists.
