The Study of Renaissance Thought... and Praxis

Posted By Alison K. Frazier, Wednesday, May 24, 2017

John O’Malley: The Study of Renaissance Thought…and Praxis

Sponsored by the American Academy in Rome-Society of Fellows

John O'Malley's Giles of Viterbo on Church and Reform: A Study of Renaissance Thought (1968) celebrates its 50th anniversary next year. Not only was that the research John pursued at the Academy as a fellow, but it was also the first, influential salvo in what has been a remarkable (and still active) scholarly career. For this panel we welcome a broad range of contributions that might focus on Giles himself; on the intellectual, religious, and artistic context of the High (and later) Renaissance, especially in Rome; on “early modern Catholicism” and the historiography of 16th-century religious reforms; on church councils and the papacy; and, of course, on Jesuit Studies, an area in which, as John has pointed out, non-Jesuits now feature among the most innovative exponents.
