Brown Bag Lunch Topic: Jesuits, Ottoman Empire
SU Doctoral Candidate to Lead Discussion
Written By Tyler Gardinier '14, PR Intern
Final Brown Bag Lunch lecture of the Fall semester
Utica, NY (11/26/2013)- On Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 12:30 p.m. in the DuRoss Faculty Dining Room, the History Brown Bag Lunch lecture series features Syracuse University doctoral candidate Robert Clines and his lecture titled, “The Society of Jesus Between Rome and the Christian Orient.”
Between 1560 and 1585, the Society of Jesus carried out three missions to the Christian communities of the Ottoman Empire in an attempt to unite Eastern Christians and the Catholic Church under the authority of the papacy. Each of these three missions had their own set of problems, including the interference of Jews and Muslims, and the high rates of illiteracy in the Christians of Lebanon.
This presentation links these three missions, demonstrates that the Jesuits had to navigate both the unique currents of life on the individual missions as well as the pressures Rome placed on the Jesuits to succeed.
The History Brown Bag Lunch lecture holds talks on the second Wednesday of each month at 12:30 p.m. during the fall and spring semesters. The lecture is free and open to the public.
For more information on the History Brown Bag Lunch lecture, contact David Wittner, professor of history, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes and a range of fieldwork assignments. I remember how exciting it was to actually relate theory into practice." "My Child Life degree from Utica College has prepared me well for my career as a Child Life Specialist. Not only did I get a thorough background in child growth and development, I was also prepared through classes such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medicines and Pediatrics, which has been a great asset in working in a health care profession. Fieldwork hours with both healthy and hospitalized children including a wide range of ages and abilities were an invaluable experience. I remember how exciting it was during my internship when I was able to actually relate theory into practice."
