INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON JESUIT STUDIES

Francisco Suárez (1548–1617): Jesuits and Complexities of Modernity

Universidad Loyola Andalucía, Seville

June 1–2, 2018



CALL FOR PAPERS

Co-organized by the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College and the Departamento de Humanidades y Filosofía de la Universidad Loyola Andalucía



Francisco Suárez, S.J. (1548–1617) is recognized as a philosopher, theologian, and jurist who had a significant cultural impact in the development of modernity. Commemorating the 400th anniversary of his death, our symposium will study the work of Suárez and other Jesuits of his time in the context of diverse traditions that came together in Europe between the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance and early modernity.

Can the work of the Jesuits be seen not only as a forerunner of philosophical, political, or legal modernity, but also as an expression of an alternative modernity? What is the relationship between the Ignatian and Jesuit tradition and the development of the work of Suárez and his contemporaries? What elements of the work of Suárez and other Jesuits may today be relevant to face the crisis of modernity?



Francisco Suárez, S.J. (1548–1617) es reconocido como un filósofo, teólogo y jurista que tuvo un alto impacto cultural en los inicios y desarrollos de la modernidad. Celebrando el 400 aniversario de su muerte, en nuestro symposium estudiaremos la obra de Suárez y de otros jesuitas de su época en el contexto de las diversas tradiciones que confluyeron en Europa entre el tardo medioevo y el Renacimiento y la primera modernidad.

¿La obra de los jesuitas puede ser vista no solo como precursora de la modernidad filosófica, política o jurídica, sino también como expresión de una modernidad alternativa?

¿Cuál es la relación entre la tradición ignaciana y jesuita y el desarrollo de la obra de Suárez y sus contemporáneos? ¿Qué elementos de la obra de Suárez y otros jesuitas pueden ser hoy relevantes para enfrentar la crisis de la modernidad?



These are just a few of many issues we would like to discuss. To participate in this discussion, email a short (200–250 word) abstract of a proposed paper in Spanish or in English to both Professors Juan Antonio Senent de Frutos (jasenent@uloyola.es) and Robert Aleksander Maryks (maryks@bc.edu) before September 30, 2017, and if accepted, the full paper (8–10,000 words) before December 31, 2017. Selected papers will be published after the symposium either in a dedicated volume (Boston College Symposia on Jesuit Studies Series at Brill) or in the Journal of Jesuit Studies.
