A Missionary Order without Saints: Unbeatified and Uncanonized Jesuits and Substitute Sanctity in Italy and Peru, 1580-1622

April 9 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the Center for Latin American Studies in a conversation with Dr. Gauvin Bailey about the decades during which the Catholic Reformation found themselves as a “missionary order without saints.” Learn about the history of this time period and how the Church adapted to this unusual situation.

He has taught Renaissance, Baroque, Latin American, and Asian art at King’s College at the University of Aberdeen, Boston College, and Clark University, and has held guest professorships at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich, Boston University, and the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá.

He is a correspondent étranger of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres at the Institut de France and a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. Bailey has published nine books, co-authored or edited seven more, and written over 70 articles. His two latest books are The Palace of Sans-Souci in Milot, Haiti (ca. 1806-13): the Untold Story of the Potsdam of the Rainforest (Berlin and Munich, Deutscher Kunstverlag, 2017) and Architecture & Urbanism in the French Atlantic Empire: State, Church, and Society, 1604-1830 (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2018).
