On Tuesday, May 22, the Department of Catholic Studies will host Francisco Malta Romeiras, a historian of science, for his talk titled "Catholic Church, Science and Political Power." This event is open to all members of the DePaul community.

Romerias' speech aims at moving beyond the traditional understanding of the censorship of scientific texts. By examining the material evidence of censorship mechanisms, he reveals the processes and effectiveness of ecclesiastical control in the Portuguese Inquisition and highlights the differences between what inquisitors wrote in the indexes and what others put into practice.
