Ignatius of Loyola and the Catholic Reformation

Rev. Aaron Pidel, S.J., Marquette University

Even as Luther’s reformation gathered momentum in Germany, another reformation was beginning in Spain.  Join us on Thurs., November 16 from 3:45 to 5:15 in MAC 204 to hear Aaron Pidel, SJ, speak about Ignatius of Loyola and the Catholic Reformation.  Drawing from his training as a Jesuit and a professor of theology at Marquette University, Prof. Pidel will describe Ignatius’s dramatic life and the early history of the Society of Jesus that would provoke and fuel some of the major movements of sixteenth century Catholicism, from devotional renewal to missions to engagement with opposing reformations.
