John Padberg on the Suppression and Restoration of the Jesuits

John Padberg, S.J., presented a colloquium at Loyola University Chicago on October 18, 2012, on the Suppression (1773-1814) and Restoration (1814) of the Society of Jesus. He concluded with observations on the mentalities shaping 19th-century Jesuit enterprises, both in Europe and America — setting the ground for the topics of “Restored Jesuits and the American Experience.” A video of the colloquium is now available on our conference YouTube Channel and included below.

Fr. Padberg is director of the Institute of Jesuit Sources and author of Colleges in Controversy: The Jesuit Schools in France from Revival to Suppression 1815-1880.
