Between Religious Liberty and Religious Commitment: What Can We Learn from Fourth Century Milan?

Paola Francesca Moretti has been an associate professor of Latin language and literature at the Università degli Studi in Milan (Italy) since 2010. Her research activity mainly focuses on late Latin literature and culture: the interrelationships between pagan and Christian culture; Ambrose of Milan’s commentaries on the Psalms and his letters; Jerome’s letters; Augustine’s prose; Christian poetry (Proba’s Virgilian cento; the Laudes Domini); and, female gender models in the Latin Fathers. She is the university’s Italian Fulbright scholar for the 2014 spring semester and will be giving a public lecture on Thursday, March 20th at 12:30 p.m. in the McGlinn Room of the Institute for Educational Initiatives (next door to Brownson Hall).

A limited number of lunches will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
