Speaker: Jeff Zalar, Conway Endowed Chair in Catholic Studies & Associate Professor of History

Description:  The Index of Forbidden Books, retired in 1966, was one of the most recognizable features of modern Catholicism.  But what was it really, how did it function, and what role did it play in creating the conditions of modern intellectual life?  This lecture explores these questions in considering how different learning cultures determined what was worth knowing.

This annual lecture, on hiatus during Covid, shares university-level talks by Catholic academics with the public at no charge.
