The Second Vatican Council is widely understood as one of the key events of the twentieth century. But its integration into the global history of the era has been at best partial. The lecture will probe the meaning of the council in places as diverse as Chile, Central Europe, and South Korea, and suggest how the council not only reshaped the trajectory of Catholicism, the world’s most multilingual and multicultural institution, but global history more generally.

John T. McGreevy is the Charles and Jill Fischer Provost and the Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame.  He is the author of Catholicism: A Global History from the French Revolution to Pope Francis (W. W. Norton, 2022).

The online lecture is for students and faculty of institutions in the Catholic Universities Partnership.
