Fall 2014 Yamauchi Lecture: African Slaves & Catholic Liberators

Time: 6:15 pm to 8 pm

Contact: Sara Clark · srclark@loyno.edu · 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.

ABOUT THE LECTURER: James Gaffney retired as Professor Emeritus of Ethics in 1999, after 22 years with Loyola's Religious Studies Department. Since retirement, he has taught at Iowa State, the University of Iowa, and the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. He has held visiting professorships in Europe and Africa, as well as Alaska Pacific and Notre Dame, IN. Author of ten books, editor of one, and contributor to five others, he has published more than a hundred articles in various journals. His present lecture was stimulated by experience and research during a sojourn in the Dominican Republic.

James Yamauchi, S.J., a former Chair of the Department of Religious Studies who taught at Loyola University New Orleans from 1956 to 1966.

Time: 7 pm to 9 pm

Contact: Office of Public Affairs · publaff@loyno.edu

Location: Roussel Performance Hall, 2nd Floor, Comm./Music Complex

The Rev. James Martin, S.J., is a Jesuit priest, culture editor of America magazine, and author of numerous books, including My Life With the Saints, which Publishers Weekly named one of the best books of 2006. Father Martin is a frequent commentator in the national and international media, having appeared in such diverse outlets as The Colbert Report, Fresh Air, The O'Reilly Factor, NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Boston Globe, and on the History Channel, BBC, and Vatican Radio. Before entering the Jesuits in 1988 he graduated from the Wharton School of Business.

In his new book Jesus: A Pilgrimage, Father Martin brings the Gospels to life and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel.

Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus's life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. Martin also brings together the most up-to-date Scripture scholarship, wise spiritual reflections, and lighthearted stories about traveling through the Holy Land with a fellow (and funny) Jesuit, visiting important sites in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
