Succeeding the Jesuits: the rise of the Congregation of the Mission in the Eighteenth-century

Tomorrow, I am beginning a new phase of research, generously sponsored by the VIncentian Studies Institute, which is going to examine the Congregation's arrival and growth in popularity in certain European cities in the eighteenth century (Lisbon, Bologna, Evora, Barcelona among others). This groundwork will hopefully till the terrain for a further analysis of the Congregation's rivalry with the Jesuits later in the century. This month I shall be excavating materials in the mother house in France, as well as  diplomatic material at the Archives of Foreign Affairs, and the National Archives. I'll keep all the historian peers here posted on my findings!
