'History And Presence'


Robert A. Orsi is a professor of religious studies and history and the Grace Craddock Nagle Chair in Catholic Studies at Northwestern University. He is the author of a new book, History and Presence. In the book, Orsi challenges modern conceptions of the presence of the transcendent in our lives, beginning with the metaphysical Eucharistic debates of early modern Europe, and proposing a view of history where our gods are fully present.
