TRRC Talk: “The Jesuits as Agents of the Gutenberg Revolution”

The first talk of 2017 at the Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium will take place next week, on Thursday, 19 January, at 4 pm in the Victoria College Senior Common Room.

The speaker will be Prof. Francesco Guardiani (Italian, UoT) who will talk
about ““Apostles of Modernity: Italian Jesuits As Agents of the Gutenberg Revolution.”

This talk combines several of Professor Guardiani’s interests (the early modern Jesuits, the print revolution, early publishing) and is sure to offer fascinating new insights into the Jesuits’ use of the print medium in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
