(New York, NY) Lecture: From Peru to Mars: New Worlds and Jesuit Science

PRESENTER
Br. Guy Consolmagno, S.J.
Director of the Vatican Observatory and President of the Vatican Observatory Foundation

Is there a particularly “Jesuit” form of science? From Acosta’s work in the New World to modern research at the Vatican Observatory, we’ll look at the work of a number of Jesuit scientists through history and see how what they did, and why they did it, was colored and influenced by Ignatian Spirituality as seen in the Spiritual Exercises.

The 2022 Lectures at St. Ignatius series has been generously underwritten by an anonymous donor.
