Content description

The second annual Jesuit Heritage Summer School will focus on the themes of sanctity, hagiography, and iconography, with which the Society of Jesus has a rich and complex relationship. Sessions will not only be devoted to the founder saints of the Society, but also to the ways in which the Jesuits transformed the tradition of Western hagiography through the writings of the Bollandists, and how Baroque art was used in the iconographic campaigns of the Order.

Target group

This summer school is intended for Master and PhD students with an interest in history, art history, religious history and Jesuit studies. 

ECTS credits

Successful completion of the summer school can be awarded with 3 credits according the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

To include the credits in the curriculum at the home institution, participants need an agreement with the responsible person at the home institution.

A certificate will be awarded at the end of the programme. All certificates of completion are issued as a micro-credential.
