BC's New Institute for Jesuit Studies

In the latest edition of the The Boston College Chronicle, BC's publication for faculty and staff, Sean Smith reports on the newly created Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies. The Institute, under the direction of Fr. Casey Beaumier, S.J., will serve as "a locus for courses, workshops, publications, scholarly symposia and other events and activities that convey the character and nature of the Jesuit mission."

The institute’s inaugural offering was a Jesuit Immersion program this past July, in collaboration with the School of Theology and Ministry, that provided participants with an historical, faith and pedagogical perspective of the Society of Jesus. The program included a 10-day pilgrimage to Spain and Rome, followed by four weeks of courses at BC.

A major facet of the institute’s work, Fr. Beaumier said, will be serving as new headquarters for the Institute of Jesuit Sources, a scholarly publishing house for Jesuit-related texts and studies founded by the Missouri Province of the Society of Jesus in 1961. The relocation of Jesuit Sources – which publishes Jesuit primary sources in English translation, monographs on Jesuits, and auxiliary literature in Jesuit studies – to BC is to take place in late November.
