University of Toronto Professor Emeritus of History Paul F. Grendler will deliver the annual Feore Family Lecture on Jesuit Studies on Oct. 2 in the Heights Room of Corcoran Commons. The event will begin with a 4 p.m. reception, followed by his lecture, “A Historian’s Journey to Jesuit Education,” at 5 p.m. Grendler has published 10 books, including The Roman Inquisition and the Venetian Press 1540-1605 (winner of the Marraro Prize from the American Catholic Historical Association) and Schooling in Renaissance Italy and The Universities of the Italian Renaissance, both winners of the Marraro Prize from the American Historical Association. An internationally renowned historian, Grendler is a recipient of lifetime achievement awards from the Renaissance Society of America and the Society for Italian Historical Studies. In 2014 he received the Galileo Galilei International Prize presented annually to a non-Italian who has made major contributions to Italian scholarship. The event is sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Jesuit Studies at Boston College, which will present Grendler with the George E. Ganss, S.J., Award in Jesuit Studies to recognize his significant scholarly contributions to the field.
