Secularization and the Jesuits

Challenges to the Society of Jesus in a Secularized Catholicism


On June 13 and 14, 2013, a group of prominent sociologists and Jesuit met at Boston to discuss the challenges of Secularization to the Society of Jesus. The aim of the workshop was to provide the Jesuits a better understanding of Secularization and its challenges and opportunities, and to give social scientists the opportunity to study and discuss the impact of Secularization on this international religious body.

The event was sponsored by the Jesuit Institute, The Secretariat for the Service of Faith of the Society of Jesus,  and the Sociology Department of Boston College
