Conference on Jerome Xavier

The 400th anniversary of the Spanish Jesuit Jerónimode Ezpeletay Goñi (1549-1617) marked the beginnings of a new research initiative at the Institute of Missiology and the Study of Theologies Beyond Europe at the University of Münster, on his legacy of cross-cultural and interreligious engagement with Mughal India and (posthum) with Safavid Persia through his Āyena-ye ḥaqq-namā (The Truth–revealing Mirror; 1607).

This conference not only commemorates some of Jerome’s major contributions by presenting these recent achievements in Jerome Xavier scholarship, but also seeks to gather the expertise to help orient the new project and create an international postdoc research group for it at the University of Münster.(exc/sca)
