Time: 6:15 pm to 8 pm

Contact: Sara Clark · · 504 865 3943

Location: Audubon Room, 2nd Floor, Danna Center

Loyola University New Orleans’ College of Humanities and Natural Sciences & the Department of Religious Studies present the Fall 2014 Yamauchi Lecture:

“African Slaves and Catholic Liberators: Why Bad Things Went Unnoticed by Good People”
Dr. James Gaffney, Professor Emeritus of Ethics and former Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Loyola University, New Orleans

How was the Catholic Church's tolerance of slavery throughout most of its history influenced by the New Testament, Aristotle, and St. Thomas Aquinas?

Tuesday, October 21, 7pm
Reception at 6:15pm
Free, and Open to the Public

Why did St. Peter Claver  -- the Church's “Slave of the Slaves”--  never advocate emancipation?

Loyola University New Orleans
Audubon Room
Danna Center, 2nd floor

6363 Saint Charles Avenue
New Orleans, LA, 70118

Why did moral champions of abused Native Americans ignore the plight of African slaves?
Why was there no universal moral condemnation of slavery by the Catholic Church until Vatican II?

How were Catholic attitudes towards the enslaved perverted by the myth of a biblical curse, by a distorted image of Africa, by Spanish anti-Islamic prejudice, and by the spectacle of enslaved Africans?

Why were Protestants more prominent than Catholics in the American Abolition Movement?
Can this tragic history offer us any positive moral wisdom?

Sometimes, even in saints and heroes, moral empathy and energy are tightly linked to moral apathy and inertia. In Catholic colonialism that irony became chronic: Hard to diagnose, and with painful consequences for interracial justice.

Free parking in the West Road Garage!
Please do not park in reserved, metered, or handicapped spaces.
