The Jesuits on a Global Mission

Lecture no. 13 from the course: History's Greatest Voyages of Exploration

The Jesuits on a Global Mission

Taught by Professor Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Founded in 1540, the order of the Jesuits used global cultural exploration as a means to proselytize to local cultures across the world, from India and China to the Americas. Examine their controversial method of inculturation, and place the Jesuit project in the context of a larger intellectual shift towards cultural relativism.
