The Frontiers of Mission: Perspectives on Early Modern Missionary Catholicism

A new volume of essays edited by Alison Forrestal and myself is now slated to be published by Ashgate in 2015. The Frontiers of Mission: Perspectives on Early Modern Missionary Catholicism, is the product of a lengthy collaboration which began with a conference in Galway in June 2013. The volume seeks to bring a new set of perspectives to Catholic missionary activity in the early modern period, confronting the validity of the oft-repeated claim that the missionary experience can be understood within a theoretical framework of uniformity and co-ordination.  It will instead examine the effects of distance and de-centering on missionaries of a variety of orders. As well as essays on old favourite such as the Franciscans and Jesuits, the volume  will also boast essays on the Lazarists by Andrew McCormick and Sean Smith. This represents another great opportunity to showcase recent advances in Vincentian history!
