Catholic Theology Research Seminar - Sarah Barthélemy

Sarah Barthélemy is the Catherine de Francheville Fellow in the History of Catholicism at the CCS. She holds a doctorate in history, art, and archaeology from the Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium) and in history and civilisations from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (France). She has taught as a visiting professor in Belgium (UCLouvain Saint-Louis).

She is a convening committee founding member of ISHWRA. Her research and publications focus on the history of gender and Catholicism, the history of religious institutions, and the construction and politics of women's sanctity. Her first monograph, titled Le genre de la Société de Jésus, will be published by the Presses Universitaires de Rennes in 2024.

This seminar forms part of the Catholic Theology Research Seminar Series (CTRS). The CTRS is a regular forum for scholarly discussion of pertinent issues in the Catholic traditions of theology and Church. The seminar series ranges across the traditional theological disciplines (scriptural, historical, philosophical, systematic, liturgical, ethical and practical/pastoral), Catholic social thought and practice, and social-scientific approaches to Catholicism.
